June 24, Takeout Wednesday celebrates Pizza Day, as part of its series of food holidays.

Upcoming food holidays include Game Day on July 29 and Sandwich Day on Aug. 12. Restaurant owners, chefs, culinary leaders and celebrities across Canada have joined forces to support Canada Takeout to make every Wednesday #TakeoutDay, a movement that encourages Canadians to order from their favourite local restaurant offering takeout or delivery.

“Restaurants are vital to the social and economic fabric of communities across Canada, but operating a foodservice business is tough, even in the best of times,” says Shanna Munro, Restaurants Canada president and CEO. “Not only was our industry among the first to feel the impacts of COVID-19, we’ve been one of the hardest hit so far, with nearly two thirds of our workforce now lost. We would love to see Canadians embrace #TakeoutDay and support those restaurants who are still able to operate through takeout or delivery.”

“#TakeoutDay aims to save more than just businesses – whether it’s the local mom and pop eatery or the popular restaurant that made it onto top dining lists. Our robust and diverse culinary scene is an integral part of Canada’s unique identity and we stand to lose an important part of our culture and heritage if we don’t do our part,” says Pay Chen, a popular food opinion leader and an ambassador for Canada Takeout.
