To Dine or Not to Dine?
The New South Wales government’s Dine and Discover program was introduced in March 2021 in an effort to encourage the community to get out and support local hospitality, arts and tourism businesses affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Although almost 17 million Dine & Discover vouchers have been downloaded since March, under 40% of downloaded vouchers have actually been used. In a bid to up uses, the NSW government has extended the Dine & Discover vouchers for an extra month to account for school holidays. However is this scheme achieving all desired outcomes, and is everyone really being accounted for? We were joined by Zac Crellin, News Writer at PEDESTRIAN.TV to discuss with us some of the perceived issues with these vouchers.
