Take out and take care of your neighborhood favorites

Outdoor dining at a restaurant in Philadelphia during the Coronavirus pandemic
From the WHYY Special documentary, Restaurants in Crisis: COVID-19

This holiday season, show your support for WHYY, your local public media station, and our community’s restaurants with one donation. When you make a donation of $120, we’ll send you a $30 gift card to spend at one of your favorite neighborhood spots. Choose from one of these great places and help secure the future of both public media and our beloved restaurants.

Our neighborhood restaurants have always been there for us. We’ve depended on them for a cheesesteak during the big game or a steaming bowl of ramen on a cold day. There’s no doubt that the restaurant industry and its workers have been hit hard. It’s time for us to be there for them.
