Love Local Delivery Introduces Designer T-shirts
to Raise Money for Local Restaurants and Community Charities.
Shepherds of Good Hope (Taste for Hope) and Carefor Health & Community Services (Feast of Fields), each in their own way, support Ottawa’s most vulnerable population and will share 50% of T-shirt sales proceeds. The other 50% will be directly supporting local restaurants. In addition to sales via Instagram, Facebook and Municipal-apparel.com, T-shirts will be available from participating restaurants.
Extraordinary circumstances bring out extraordinary responses, and our caring community is no exception. Local eateries have teamed up with local designated driver service Responsible Choice to launch “Love Local Delivery.” A food delivery service responding to the public “Stay at Home” Ottawa City Health guideline to contain COVID-19.
Love Local Delivery is truly a labour of love created and designed to keep money in our community and support local restaurants. Conceived & Coordinated by Knock on Wood, Logo Design by Birddog Design Studio and Proudly Supported by She Shops Local & YOW City Style.

Safe and Satisfying Experience
To ensure the safest, most satisfying at-home experience we follow and recommend you follow these practices whenever you order take-out or delivery
We ensure that our drivers are following all Public Health Agency of Canada recommendations and guidelines. Staying on top of them to report any symptoms or exposure and advise those who do to self-isolate as recommended. Our drivers also frequently wash their hands and clean/ disinfect the vehicles they use.
Simply let the restaurant know that you would prefer no contact with the driver. Give them your specific contactless instructions. For example, when they arrive, they can notify you and leave your food on your doorstep (or where you request).
Please wash your hands after receiving your food order and before you eat it!
Pay for your order by credit card payment over the phone, executed by your chosen restaurant.
You can ask the restaurant to add a tip for the driver when you place your orders.
