One third of the 950,000 gastronomy vouchers have already been redeemed and settled “Treat yourself to a nice meal and do something good with it,” says the city government. The Viennese population followed this call. At the moment 300,000th restaurant voucher had already been redeemed. To date, the city has settled and transferred food bills amounting to 10 million euros. The direct help is very well received by the Viennese and by restaurant establishments.
The city sent out 950,000 gastro vouchers in the second half of June. Today, one month later, a third of them have already been redeemed. “This is an important sign and direct help for the Viennese gastronomy”, Vienna Mayor Michael Ludwig said. One-person households received 25 euros, more people 50 euros, which can be redeemed at the favourite restaurant for everything except alcohol. 3700 establishments promptly registered to take part.
Those who do not need the voucher themselves can donate. Peter Hanke, City Councillor for Economic Affairs, says: “We are providing a total of 40 million euros. The vouchers are valid until the end of September. Hence my appeal to the Viennese: Treat yourself to a nice meal and do something good for yourself and our Viennese business sector.
