Over the next month or two, to reduce the chances of bringing coronavirus into their workplaces, staff are being asked to try to reduce how much time they spend in public spaces where the chances of being infected are greater.
However, staff still need to eat and so national office provider Offices.co.uk is asking local restaurants to help by changing up their offering and getting in touch with their local offices to offer a takeaway service.
Jonathan Ratcliffe from the specialist website said: “All the staff in our buildings across the UK still need feeding, and we are asking local restaurants to contact their neighbouring office buildings to help provide takeaway food during the coronavirus shut down."
One of the main concerns in the food and drink industry is that coronavirus has the potential to cause huge financial damage to businesses which thrive on busy environments, which people are now actively avoiding.
“We don’t want to see any of our restaurant neighbours hurt financially through this crisis, and therefore ask local food outlets to step up and provide food to people directly – we need to work together."
