Help restaurants and save yourself time in the kitchen for what’s bound to be a weird holiday anyway
Thanksgiving, the traditional start of the holiday season, is getting a COVID-19 makeover. With the Centers for Disease Control advising against holiday travel, many individuals across the United States are finally surrendering to the grim reality of the pandemic by making last-minute calls canceling family dinner plans. In fact, only 29 percent of consumers are expected to host or attend a meal with extended family who does not live with them in 2020, down almost 20 percent from the 2019 holiday, according to market research firm IRI. Restaurants and food suppliers are also adjusting to the altered vision of a holiday with more people dining separately.
