Restaurant Discounts for Frontline Workers in Vancouver

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

We salute them every night at 7:00pm during the shift change at St Paul’s (and beyond), the BC Government has finally waived hospital parking fees, and now many restaurants are offering discounts for frontline workers in Vancouver.

It’s really moving to see the restaurant industry, that has been hit so hard itself, give back to its community. Here are some resources for take-out and delivery options that you can share with your friends and loved ones who are courageously fighting COVID-19 on behalf of us all.
