Stronger Together -- About the Newton-Needham Dining Collaborative
Our local restauranteurs have demonstrated unparalleled
tenacity, resilience and creativity the past six months. During the necessary spring closures they fed our frontline and essential workers
and provided thousands of meals to our food pantries and residents in need.
They pivoted from fine dining special occasions and neighborhood hang outs to freezer family meals and zoom happy hours. As we began to reopen, tents were erected, patios built, plexi glass installed and masks stocked – all to keep us safe as we began to venture out and reunite with family and friends.
Yet the industry continues to be one of the hardest hit during this pandemic. 1 in 5 restaurants in Massachusetts have permanently closed according to the Massachusetts Restaurant Association. A number that’s unfortunately likely to increase.
So, our restaurant community has come together to form the Newton-Needham Dining Collaborative – to support each other -- and to ask you for your help. Whether it’s take out, delivery, outdoor dining , socially distanced inside seating, or a gift card for a friend–find more time in your week to support our local restaurants.
