“Great American Takeout” event gives boaters and local an opportunity to support restaurant owners during COVID-19 crisis.
VENTURA—Local restaurants at Ventura Harbor will be participating in the Great American Takeout on March 24. The Great American Takeout is a national campaign to bolster dining establishments by encouraging locals to buy at least one meal as a to-go or takeout.
“Ventura Harbor Village’s seafood markets continue to stay open, offering customers a safe alternative to proteins fresh off the boats. In addition, the weekly Saturday Fishermen’s Market in the Ventura Harbor Village continues from 7:30 a.m. to noon (or while supplies last),” Ventura Harbor staff said in a released statement.
Brian Pendleton, Ventura Port District’s general manager, said the Great American Takeout highlights the restaurant industry, “which has been particularly hard hit” by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has caused consumer-based businesses to drastically slash or completely cease operations, especially in states such as California and New York.
