During the pandemic, as never before, it's so important to support local businesses. Restaurants have had a very tough time, relying on take-out and delivery but local customers have, for the time being, kept many of these places open during these tough times. One business that has been booming since last winter is food delivery services, like Uber Eats, Grubhub, DoorDash, Skip The Dishes and others like that. Have you used any food delivery service to have restaurant meals delivered to you during the last year?
