We are all together going through strange, hard and uncertain times. Not only have we all been affected in one way, or another, by the pandemic virus Covid-19, but we are also starting to feel the devastating effects the virus is having, and is expected to have, on our economy. Because of the lockdown, many restaurants have been forced to temporarily shut their doors, ultimately leading to employees being laid off, and entire businesses suddenly finding themselves on the brink of collapse.
As a community, and especially a tight-knit one like the Nordic community in the United States, we all need to come together to keep our favourite businesses alive.
The Swedes in the States team and I are offering our support throughout this time, as we continuously try to find ways where we can be of help to small Nordic businesses and entrepreneurs. To make sure we leave no stone unturned, I welcome any ideas and suggestions from our readers, community members, and partners.
We would like to start by putting up a list of all Nordic restaurants and cafés that are still open for take-out and delivery. Please consider ordering from them.
All links lead to their Facebook-page, where you can get in touch with the businesses directly.
If you know of a Nordic food business that should be included or have ideas on how we can further provide support, let us know on our Facebook page, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
