6 Restaurants In Quebec Offering Essential Service Workers Discounts Right Now

As a "thank you" to all the employees who are currently working hard to provide impeccable service to the community, several restaurants are offering free things or discounts to essential service workers in Quebec. It's extremely nice to see how their hard work is greatly recognized and appreciated, which it deserves to be.

From natural energy drinks to free coffee, tea and meals, these few options are likely to make life easier for many employees who are short on energy and time in this time of crisis, which is far from obvious, especially for them.

Essential service workers include the Red Cross, health services, all professions in the health and social services network, correctional services officers, police officers and firefighters, and others.

You can find an official list of essential services that was released by the Government of Quebec on March 23 here.

If you work in any of these essential fields, we here at MTL Blog thank you for all that you are doing for us.

You can find the list of restaurants offering discounts for front line workers below.

In this time of broken normality, it is difficult for employees in the health care system to find time to cook themselves a good meal.

Nevertheless, WeCook will be distributing four weeks of free meals to 300 employees and it's well worth it.
