How to Support Local Businesses:

Several organizations have developed listings of restaurants available for take out and delivery and retailers available for online shopping.

  • A coalition of local tech volunteers, along with Santa Cruz Works, have joined together to create a new website to support our local businesses: This website is set up for you to buy gift cards, receive delivery of product and to take virtual yoga classes! If your business is not listed on the website please click the link below to add it to the site. The more people and businesses who participate, the more we can support our local business community and make a positive difference during these times:
  • Edible Monterey Bay Magazine has developed a map and form to collect information about restaurants available for take out/delivery. View the map here.
  • The Downtown Association has also pulled together a listing of retailers and restaurants open for businesses.
