Oxnard restaurant The Raven Tavern is following California health orders to shut down all dining except takeout, but they want restaurant employees throughout the area to know how much they are appreciated and to thank them for keeping the restaurant industry going during the past nine months.
Beginning Monday, January 11, The Raven Tavern will offer a free “Thank You” meal to any restaurant employee. Restaurant workers can stop by between 2:00-4:00 pm on Mondays and receive their “Thank You” meal.
Owners Andy Lowe and Ronan Corbett had to shut down outdoor dining at The Raven Tavern just five months after opening and lay off most employees, but they knew their employees were not the only ones affected.
Lowe says, “We want to thank all restaurant workers for the hard work they do and for putting themselves on the front lines in order to keep local restaurants open.”
They plan to keep offering the “Thank You” meals until outdoor dining is restored in Ventura County.
Restaurant workers need only show proof of recent employment at a Ventura County restaurant in order to receive a meal.
“This past year has taken a toll on independent, locally owned restaurants. Restaurants help create a vibrant community. We need to ensure that restaurant workers are not forgotten during this unprecedented time,” says Corbett.
Lowe and Corbett opened the Raven Tavern on July 1, 2020. The restaurant remains open for takeout.
Restaurant workers can contact The Raven Tavern at 805-686-7683 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the “Thank You” meals.
The Raven Tavern is located at 1651 Victoria Avenue in Oxnard, and open Sunday-Thursday from 11:30 am to 8:00 pm, and Friday-Saturday from 11:30 am to 9:00 pm.
