We're calling on the South Bend community to help our downtown restaurants by committing to spending $25 a week on carryout. This simple act can help our downtown restaurants thrive, save jobs, and also help you discover new food to enjoy!

The TakeOut 25 concept started in Oak Park, Illinois a few months ago and has made a measurable impact since its launch. We are joining communities across the nation in adapting the campaign to help their local restaurants.
The simple act of spending $25 a week could bring an average of $20,000 a month to each downtown restaurant. If 10% of our South Bend population of 100,000 commit to this initiative, that will be 10,000 people x $100/month (4 weeks/$25 per week) = $1 million a month. $1 million divided between our 50 downtown restaurants equals a $20,000/month impact per restaurant.
Take the pledge today to show your support! Click here to sign the pledge.
The community is asked to join the Facebook Group “TakeOut 25 Downtown South Bend” and take the pledge, then post pictures of their carryout food/drinks on the group page. As an added incentive, each post will be added entered into a monthly drawing to win a $100 gift card to the establishment mentioned in the post. Gift cards are generously sponsored by United Beverage.
