One of the best ways to help our community to thrive is to shop local. 

There's plenty you can do to help local businesses right from your apartment. The Village is a close knit community and people are stepping up with unique ways to help those in the neighbourhood and throughout Toronto.

If you aren't ready to dine in a restaurant or on the patio, you can still experience the best of Toronto with a Food Tour Box. These boxes, created by The Culinary Adventure Co., offer a selection of foods from restaurants in different neighbourhoods. Starting at $30, these boxes are delivered to your door so you can enjoy them from the comfort of your apartment. Some Food Tour Boxes come with classes or Zoom interactive tastings to help you get the most out of your selection.

The long-awaited patio season is upon us, and Toronto doesn't disappoint. Take your dining to a new level when you visit the rooftop patio at the Queen & Beaver Public House or The Black Eagle. Both Village locations are open seven days a week with reservations or walk-in service.

Looking to brighten your day or make someone you care about smile? Toronto is full of local shops offering unique items perfect for keeping or gifting. Blue Banana Market on Augusta Avenue has fun items that will help anyone smile. They are open seven days a week with the option to do online orders, with $8 shipping or free pickup. Shop for your four-legged friends at K9 Couture where both you and your pet are welcome for in-person shopping.

Ready to see what Toronto has to offer? Many attractions are open with pre-booked time slots to keep everyone safe. Visit the CN Tower, AGO, ROM, Ripley's Aquarium, or one of the other many Toronto attractions ready to welcome you back.

We're doing great at stopping the spread, but don't forget kindness is best when spread to others.
