Coronavirus Pandemic Savaging Global Economy : Canada Local Business Support Community
All solutions start local. Today isn’t ‘business as usual’ and our community’s vibrancy is being severely tested by the global pandemic.
We need each other, now more than ever. We need that yummy gluten-free bread – and the baker needs our business.
The local businesses that we count on to make our lives more comfortable and convenient – the shops, the cafes, the services – are struggling for survival. These are our friends, our family members and neighbors…they are us.
Community For Individual and Small Business Owner in Canada
LocaLLinx uses the idea behind “Community Supported Agriculture; a tried-and-true solution that allows consumers to ‘buy shares’ in the winter of a farm’s future crop, thereby sharing the upfront financial in-vestment AND then sharing the fruits (and vegetables) of that farm’s labour. Some CSA programs provide weekly ‘returns’ of produce harvested that week. Some CSA programs provide the ‘return’ at the end of the growing season, especially for things like pumpkins. You are helping the farmer to bridge the gap between planting and harvesting, a period that can last for months.
LocaLLinx believes that Community Supported Local Economy is a natural evolution of the CSA model AND the exact type of solution that our community needs RIGHT NOW. As a consumer, you can sub-scribe to a monthly ‘basket’ program, or pre-book the best table at your favourite restaurant for the first day it can re-open. You can buy a gift card for future redemption, or simply use LocaLLinx to organize your shopping excursions with businesses’ curbside pickup programs.
