This is a new social media craze that was started to help promote local food joints that are still open for business. While you can't go inside, you can still order up some grub to take home. Thus, The Great American Takeout is happening and you should consider making it a part of your evening agenda. Remember, just because you can't go out doesn't mean you can't have takeout.

This campaign starts today and will continue on, most likely until the "new" wears off and people soon forget about the campaign until it somehow resurfaces later to be more of a callback. During The Great American Takeout, many businesses are even going as far as to offer discounted or free delivery to encourage people to participate so revenue can keep flowing. What businesses are participating in this campaign you may be wondering? Well, fear not for here are some that have been reported to be going with The Great American Takeout with discounted/free delivery: Panera Bread, Noodles & Company, Modern Market, and many more.
