Just because you’re quarantined doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious meal! We love supporting local businesses and our friends in the food and beverage industry, but also want to ensure that we’re keeping ourselves, their employees, and others safe during the coronavirus pandemic. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite restaurants on Daniel Island that are offering contact-less delivery and to-go offerings.
We’re updating this list as restaurants change course. Have a tip for us? Email firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you’d like to help our food and beverage community and those laid-off due to the crisis, there are a variety of funds to directly help those affected and keep them afloat until restaurants are able to open once more.
DONATE DIRECTLY TO INDIVIDUALS:
Serviceindustry.tips invites you to tip a local food service industry worker using Venmo or the Cash App. Tap the Charleston link, and tip the local worker that’s randomly selected for you. The website is currently helping support the industry workers in 63 cities across the country and four in South Carolina.
