Buy a Giftcard or Pre-Pay
Delivery or Curbside Pickup
Leave a Kind Review
Share a Picture of Yourself With Product, Merch or Signage

Safely Support Local Restaurants
Help keep your favorite local dining establishments in business during COVID-19 with some of these ideas:
Adopt a Restaurant
Business owners: Designate one local restaurant per week and send out messaging that encourages your employees and workforce to visit or order from those restaurants.
Order In & Help Out on Takeout Tuesdays
Support your local eateries on Takeout Tuesdays. It can be anything from swinging by a food truck for lunch, grabbing a mid-morning latte and pastry, or getting a meal delivered for the entire family.
Order with NoCo Nosh, a food delivery service locally owned by Northern Colorado restaurants working together to keep food delivery economically sustainable, focus on customer service, and keep local dollars in NoCo.
Dine & Donate with Great Plates
From March 1 – 14, Downtown’s award-winning dining promotion and fundraiser comes to life in Old Town Fort Collins! Great Plates is a celebration of the Downtown dining community and highlights restaurants offering $25 dinner specials! In addition, 100% of donation proceeds from this community culinary celebration benefit the Food Bank for Larimer County.
Order a Dinner Party
Make a fun night out of ordering dinner parties to go from local restaurants! Order one for your family and another for a friend’s family, then enjoy your meals together over a video call.
