Love Local Delivery connects Ottawa eateries with the patrons who miss them

By Hannah Manning on April 3, 2020



Editors’ Note: Apartment613 is crowdsourcing a directory of Ottawa restaurants offering takeout and delivery throughout COVID-19. Click here for the growing list.

Love Local Delivery is a delivery service that launched mid-March to connect local eateries with the patrons who miss them dearly. With drivers from Responsible Choice (a designated driving service), local restaurants are able to deliver ready-to-serve and heat-and-serve meals right to your door. In their own words, extraordinary circumstances bring out extraordinary responses, and our caring community is no exception.

The list of participating restaurants grows every time I take a look. Hours and days vary by restaurant, and you order directly through the participating restaurant. Payment is accepted by credit card over the phone. Delivery is a set $5 fee and open to anyone within a 5km radius of the restaurant. Curbside pickup is also an option.

While the service started out in three neighbourhoods, the list has grown to over 30 participating restaurants in many of the downtown neighbourhoods. Are you a local restaurant who wants to get involved? Get in touch with Love Local Delivery online.
