wE ARE PROUD TO RALLY behind purveyors of cuisine during the COVID-19 lockdown period
For the foreseeable future, everyday life and business around the world have changed with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the numerous, significantly impacted sectors are American Filipino restaurants and chefs, whose collective work has strongly influenced the American food scene.
As social distancing and the quarantine continue, businesses pivot their models, and adapt from in-house dining to take out and delivery services.
This change is the impetus for the Filipino Food Movement to launch two campaigns:

Support Filipino Takeout is a call to action for all Filipino restaurants and food purveyors to submit their menus to the Filipino Food Movement which will be made available via the nonprofit’s social media platforms. The national directory aims to make Filipino food accessible to a nation that continues to stay at home.
On social media, the Filipino food scene has shown a significant uptick in activity and interest with daily menus, food photography, cooking demonstrations, and a constant search for easy recipes to make at home.
We're making restaurants and catering services who are open for take out or delivery during this pandemic accessible to everyone and help keep your business alive.
