We have temporarily suspended all Taste Detours touring operations. Our gatherings are always small but they require meeting in public places where social distancing standards might be challenging. We want to do our part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 spread. When the time is right to re-open, our community will be the first to know.
We are working on a re-entry plan to act on as soon as is allowable.
As you can imagine, our independent partner businesses are our literal bread and butter. I’ve already been in contact with anyone who has booked tours in the coming weeks in hopes that you’ll accept a credit voucher (or date exchange) to be used in the future.
What we are doing
Although we are not running tours at this time, we are still fulfilling our purpose — to tell the stories of the people and the places through food and drink.
We’re doing this in a few ways:
- Check our Instagram and Facebook channels and stories for all the ways you can support Wellington County’s independent food businesses and food & drink growers and makers at this crucial time.
- Sign-up for our newsletter for updates on how we will move forward in the future.
- You can also expect lots of fun and useful content to keep you going while we all #StayHome. Keep your eyes peeled mid-May for a roll-out of recipe pairings that, when fully compiled, will become our free virtual cookbook, Little Bites: Tastes from Isolation
What you can do
YOU can become part of the solution too. Please send an email to [email protected] or DM us on social media (@tastedetours on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) with any local businesses you are aware of that need our support. If you share how they are coping we can add them to our feeds and posts. We want our small businesses to stay.
You can also support our small business through the purchase of Gift eCertificates delivered directly to your inbox. To thank you for that support especially during COVID-19, please use the code RECOVERY20, for a discounted rate of 20% off at the checkout.
Thank you for your support!
With well wishes,
