We sincerely hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe. It has been a very challenging couple of weeks for everyone. And, while we know you are receiving many messages like this from many businesses, we wanted to reach out to let you know that our hearts and thoughts are with all of you and your families.
We also wanted to let you know what has been happening at Devour. Our usually full event calendar is now empty for the next eight weeks and we anticipate it may be empty for longer than this. During the week of March 16th, we made the heartbreaking decision to lay off all of our part time team members. We are staying in regular contact with everyone and providing a weekly food pick-up for those of our team who need it so we can help keep everyone as happy and healthy as possible.
Our full time team is still in place and we are very grateful for the federal government’s recent announcement regarding wage subsidies. It means we will be able to remain strong throughout this difficult time and be ready to help you come together and celebrate once it is again safe to do so. We are all currently working from our homes and developing new menu ideas and creative ways to bring our food to you.
We decided that no matter what we do, Devour would like to be a force of connection and support through this time and we are excited to offer our Easter Experience Package as a way to bring families, other local businesses, and the community together all while you gather at your dining room table.
In addition to offering a delicious menu for you to enjoy, we have partnered with Pretty Sweet Bakery, True Buch Kombucha, and Blue Hydrangea Floral to bring you a love-filled Easter celebration that you can enjoy at home or give as a gift to friends or family. All of the businesses involved are dedicating a part of the proceeds from the sale of the Easter Package towards Brown Bagging for Kids so they can buy grocery cards for families unable to buy food right now.
We thank you for your support at this critical time and we are excited to help you celebrate!
Sharing food together is something we love to do. It is why we do what we do. And, while we haven’t been able to bring and serve you our food, we wanted to share with you what our team has been busy cooking at home. From everyone at Devour to all of you at home – we are wishing you all our very best. Please keep on loving people and feeding them too!
We are a company built on heartfelt hospitality and, even though social distancing doesn’t allow for us to do what we love to do, our desire to facilitate celebration has not wavered. While Devour has been part of many once-in-a-lifetime celebrations with you, we believe that each day gives us something to celebrate. Gratitude, appreciation and connection are the essential ingredients for every celebration no matter how large or small. May you experience these essentials as you navigate this difficult time.
