Today is the first national ‘Takeout Day’ in Canada

Shelve your home-cooked dinner plans and support Whistler restaurants tonight

If food delivery or take out isn't on your list today, you might want to reconsider for Canada's first National Takeout Day.

Canadian restaurant owners and chefs will be kicking off the country's first "Takeout Day" on Wednesdays with a live nation-wide party today at 5 p.m. PST.

The event will be hosted by Canada's Great Kitchen Party on Facebook and encourages Canadians to join them while enjoying food from their local restaurants.

Culinary leaders announced this new movement last week to help support the foodservice industry, which has been greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
