Now you can order from your local restaurant online in The Berkshires with a new LOCAL partnership between and The Berkshire Eagle. Local Berkshire residents can now order from their favorite local restaurants online. This program is unique because it’s 100% FREE for LOCAL restaurants to participate.

This has been an incredibly challenging time for restaurants. The lockdown has forced many restaurants to close their doors (some permanently). “Restaurants need our support right now and this new program will help those who live in The Berkshires to show their support by going online and ordering take-out from your favorite restaurant” says Katherine Haine, Local Eats partner. “This program is unique because unlike other expensive online ordering programs, Local Eats is entirely free for the restaurant.” adds Haine. 

The Berkshire Eagle has partnered with Local Eats to help promote the program to  100,000s of LOCAL consumers using print, social and digital advertising. “We are thrilled to be part of this program and are always looking for new ways to support local restaurants and local business in our community. We’re looking forward to making it easier for restaurants in our community to get more online orders without paying the big fees.” adds Jordan Brechenser, Vice President The Berkshire Eagle.

We encourage the community to support this program and the local restaurants in their community. To learn more and to order take-out go to
