As the world emerges from the unprecedented shutdown of this past year, the simple joys of being with others, sharing a table and dining together have taken on new meaning.
Many people here in Anne Arundel County have felt the impact of this global crisis. Some local families are struggling with lost wages, child care, and the inability to put food on the table. Local restaurants were part of an industry hit hardest by closures.
The pandemic has shown a spotlight not only on those in need but also on the generosity of this community.
ACAN, a Severna Park food pantry dedicated to providing healthy food choices, was able to serve more than 22,000 individuals over the past year. This generosity was due, in part, to community support.
This year’s Star-Spangled Restaurant Week takes on special meaning as we “share the table.”
Local restaurants are teaming up with ACAN to support neighbors in need. A portion of the proceeds from the customized Restaurant Week menus will be donated to the ACAN food pantry, allowing it to continue its important work.
Please join the Greater Severna Park and Arnold Chamber of Commerce from July 3 to July 11 for Star Spangled Restaurant Week 2021 and support local restaurants as the chamber celebrates community bonds and the ability to be together.
