Save Restaurants Collection
Care of Chan curated a collection of our favorite restaurant merchandise to support relief efforts. Items from select restaurants nationwide were showcased together and available for purchase with all proceeds benefiting the restaurant or food operator in this time of extreme need.
As a result of COVID-19, restaurants around the globe are struggling in unimaginable ways. Forced to lay-off staff in record numbers, adjust workflow and close their doors, most are worried about whether they’ll be able to make it through this trying time. Restaurants operate on extremely narrow margins to begin with, and experts are citing that this pandemic could wipe out up to 75% of independently owned spots. One small (but meaningful) way customers can help support their favorite spots right now is by purchasing their merchandise, books, and gift cards.
We made that easy for you here with a curated selection of goods from our favorite spots. A little goes a long way in these times. All purchasing is done directly through the restaurant, which means they make 100% of the profits.
We gathered items from some of our favorite spots -- like Contra Group, Russ & Daughters, Jon & Vinny's, Mission Chinese Food, Sqirl, DIMES, Roberta's, Night + Market, Estela, Cafe Altro Paradiso, and others -- and are showcasing them side-by-side on this webshop. This allows customers to shop a variety of goods and proprietors all in one place. It’s our hope that fans are encouraged to purchase from many of these beloved restaurants and consider a few new ones that they can visit in the future.
