If you have had trouble finding the necessary ingredients for your favorite recipes at your local grocery store, your local restaurant may be able to help. Since restaurants use different distributors than grocery stores several have been able to set up grocery, market, or meat boxes for customers to purchase. These purchases not only give you the needed supplies but also help your favorite local restaurants as they remain closed.
