To encourage Southeastern Pennsylvania residents to eat local in the winter months, the Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association (PRLA), Neff and Today Media/Main Line Today are joining forces to launch the Hope for Hospitality program.
This unique initiative, in partnership with Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties, will help support local restaurants and reward loyal restaurant patrons.
The two-month Hope for Hospitality campaign began Feb. 1 and will run through March 31.
When purchasing a meal from a restaurant in the four-county region (dine-in, takeout or delivery), restaurant patrons will have the opportunity to win a $25 American Express gift card by sharing their experience on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter. To qualify for a weekly drawing, participating posts must tag the restaurant and include the #hopeforhospitalitypa hashtag.
The restaurant industry is also currently working to generate awareness around the Hospitality Assistance Response of Pennsylvania (HARP), an organization that provides immediate emergency funding to hospitality workers and distributes grants to front-line industry employees experiencing significant hardships due to the abrupt restaurant and hospitality closures caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit parelief.org to make a donation.
