TASTE Riverina has stepped up its campaign to support the region's businesses as lockdown continues.
With regional NSW residents under stay-at-home orders until at least August 28, Taste Riverina said it was now more important than ever for everyone to support small businesses throughout the region where possible.
With this in mind, the organisation is stepping up its program of promoting Riverina-based food and beverage growers, producers, makers and sellers on social media.
Operated by Visit Riverina - the Riverina's regional tourism organisation - Taste Riverina has encouraged residents to support businesses by purchasing vouchers, getting takeaway food (within 5km of home/your local local government area) and buying through these stores online either for yourself or for loved ones.

Visit Riverina chairman, Leeton's Brent Lawrence said while times were hard, he was confident regional communities would pull together to support each other.
"We know our local businesses are doing it tough right now after a really turbulent 18 months of interrupted and changing trade conditions," he said.
"The Riverina is a diverse region with an abundance of local produce, and cafes and restaurants that highlight the quality food and drink that is grown and made here.
"It's important for us to support each other during this time and Taste Riverina is ready and willing to promote what people are doing to get through it."
