COVID-19 Resource List: Delivery / Takeout / Services for Community Members

On March 31st, Governor Mills announced a “Stay at Home” order for the month of April, and ordered non-essential businesses to close their doors to the public.

Many local businesses are quickly adapting to our new reality – but it is not an easy time for them.

Below is a list of local businesses that are providing products or services that may be helpful to our community as we navigate the coronavirus pandemic. Local businesses are working hard to keep their community safe, and many have posted to their own social media pages about the additional precautions they are taking during this time.

Although we are a membership based organization, we are promoting any local business (not just our members) on this list because we know it is imperative that every local business gets support right now.

If you are a local business providing delivery / takeout / curbside pickup / another product or service that may be relevant to those who are at-risk – email info@portlandbuylocal.org to be added to this list.

We will do our best to keep this list updated, but if you have specific questions about a particular business or organization, it is best to reach out to them directly.

  • If you regularly give out gift cards to customers or as birthday / holiday gifts, consider buying many of them now! Local businesses need help with their cash flow, and this is a great opportunity to support them while crossing things off of your list ahead of time. You can purchase gift cards from the following companies online or have them mailed to you:
    • Rising Tide Brewing Company
    • Nomads
    • Leeward (email them at hello@leewardmaine.com to arrange)
    • Love Lab Studio (online)
    • HiFi Donuts (online)
    • Fish and Bone Portland –  Gift cards are available for purchase online, but they are plastic cards that can only be used in either of their brick & mortar stores (can’t be used on web store due to software limitations)
    • Lots of other places – almost everywhere on this list! Email us at info@portlandbuylocal.org to be added to this list, or call your favorite local business to see if they offer this service
