NH restaurants need our help. Let's unite to support them.
#rallyfornhrestaurants

This winter, let's rally for NH restaurants as they face continued devastation and significant job losses. By being there for them now, they'll be there for us to gather when the pandemic is over. Explore the website to learn more about how you can help, what restaurants are doing to keep their customers and staff safe, and get creative ideas on how to experience and enjoy in-person dining or takeout. Together, we can give restaurants a fighting chance to make it through this winter.
