Special 2020 Downtown Chowdown
The Fergus Falls Downtown Riverfront Council (FFDRC) received a donation to launch a special Downtown Chowdown initiative to generate revenue for downtown restaurants in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Two hundred and fifty (250) $10 vouchers will be available through May 31st, 2020. These vouchers will be available for the general public at the Food Shelf and Salvation Army while others will be provided to emergency responders, healthcare and other essential workers.
Unlike in years past, there will be no online registrations required and the vouchers may be redeemed at any of the participating restaurants during their current hours of operation. The FFDRC asks the public to limit these vouchers to one per family to ensure that many individuals and families can have an opportunity to support our local eateries. These are eligible for take-out and curbside pick-up ONLY. Users must indicate use of a voucher upon placing the order.
