The world is slowly starting to reopen, which is both exciting and a little nerve-wracking. You might be overwhelmed with joy but also combatting feelings of anxiety related to being out in public again. If you’re slow to leave your house and feeling a bit nervous about getting out, don’t fret.

Just like your favourite restaurants still offering contactless take-out, we’ve come up with our own locally-sourced menu.
