#AllTogetherBetter. It’s never been truer than now. That’s why we’re joining forces with The Great American Takeout, a movement that encourages people to order takeout from their favorite local restaurants, to help support our local restaurants, but we can’t do it alone. 

What we’re doing

This year, Cinco de Mayo is no ordinary Taco Tuesday! Whether it’s delivery, curbside pickup, drive-thru or takeout, order food from a Mexican restaurant and post a picture of yourself raising a queso-dipped chip, a taco, a burrito or whatever you order to the camera in recognition of the restaurant employees who are keeping us all fed during these challenging times, and you’ll be entered to win one of fifty-five $55 restaurant gift cards. Be sure to use hashtags #TheGreatAmericanTakeout and #sweepstakes, and tag @thegreatamericantakeout on Instagram or @TheGATakeout on Twitter.  

As if that wasn’t enough, Land O’Lakes is pledging to donate $5 for every social media post tagged with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout published on Tuesday May 5, 2020, to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund, up to $25,000. Because, when we all come together, we accomplish great things.
