Take Out/Delivery Reimbursement Program


What is the Take Out Reimbursement program?

City Council approved $100,000 for restaurants to purchase to-go containers and other items necessary for take-out and delivery services. Right now, restaurants are only open for take-out and delivery due to the state's Stay-At-Home order. Council also made clear the to-go containers must be compliant with city ordinances meaning no polystyrene and no plastic bags.

How does the program work?

WHAT’S REIMBURSABLE: Compostable or reusable to-go containers/boxes, utensils, reusable plastic bags, and paper bags. Click here for more eco-friendly disposables.

WHAT’S NOT REIMBURSABLE- Any polystyrene (styrofoam) or non-reusable plastic bags or utensils. 

WHAT DO WE NEED FROM RESTAURANTS- Itemized receipt and pictures (sent as an attachment not embedded in the email) proving that your purchases are within the program guidelines. Send these items to     recovery@cityofslt.us

ACTION- After a review of submitted documentation, the City will reimburse the restaurant for 1/2 of their purchase up to $5,000.
