SkipTheDishes has not forgotten the alcohol delivery either. Skip has worked directly with the provincial governments of Alberta, Ontario and British Columbia to support new legislation allowing restaurants to sell alcohol with food orders. This is an important means of stimulating the restaurant industry and supporting social distancing.
They will also continue to invest in local businesses, taking orders from restaurant partners. Thanks to marketing and order-driving plans for restaurants across Canada. SkipTheDishes says it will continue to monitor the situation closely.
In addition, from now on, they will donate an additional dollar to the Food Bank of Canada for every dollar of tip given to a local restaurant through Skip as part of this commitment.
