One very lucky grand prize winner will bag free takeout for a year in the form of a $5,000 gift card, while 100 more winners will receive a $50 gift card. It all comes courtesy of The Coca-Cola Company.
To be in with a chance of winning, you have to:
--Order takeout or delivery on Tuesday, April 14

As we know, the pandemic has devastated the restaurant industry, which employs 15 million people in the US.
"The recent groundswell of support for restaurants and restaurant employees through the #TheGreatAmericanTakeout has been heartwarming and inspiring," said Kathleen Ciaramello, President, Food service and On-Premise for Coca-Cola North America. "We hope everyone will continue to support these restaurants and their families as they have been there for so many special moments in our lives."
What’s more, Rich Products will donate $5 to the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund (RERF.US), up to $25,000 total, for every social media post tagged with #TheGreatAmericanTakeout on April 14. The National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation created RERF.US to support US restaurant workers who have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, and to provide aid to restaurant employees nationwide.
"While COVID-19 may have temporarily paused our ability to come together over great food and conversation, it cannot stop our creative spirit," said Kevin Spratt, SVP Foodservice Division, Rich Products. "Supporting #TheGreatAmericanTakeout and the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund is one small thing we can do to help our valued food service operators in this time of great need. The best part is – it's something everyone can get behind. Order takeout on April 14 and you've done your part. "
