Dear Pomodori Customers,
We hope everyone is well and coping with our new reality in the best way possible. This has been an incredible change for all of us, but I am certain we will get through it together.
We are committed to staying open during this crisis because we believe we can help our community more if we do. We also understand that many will find it challenging to cook 3 meals per day every day.
We have 3 options to serve you: order online and pick up at the curb, order in store while maintaining 2m separation or order using Skip The Dishes (free delivery) or DoorDash, who are both maintaining contactless delivery. Skip and DoorDash are only available from our Saint John location at the moment, but Moncton should be online by next Tuesday. For the near term, Moncton is also offering delivery to their neighbourhood.
I found inspiration this week from a post made by a butcher I met in Italy a few years ago, please see below.
From all of us at Pomodori, all our best.
Albert Einstein, describing how Crisis is a great blessing for people and nations, because crisis brings progress:
“We can’t expect change if we keep doing the same things.
Crisis is a great blessing for people and nations, because crisis brings progress. Creativity arises from anguish, as day arises from the dark of night. It is in periods of crisis that inventiveness, discoveries and great strategies are born. Those who overcome the crisis bring out the best in themselves without being “overcome”.
Whoever attributes their failures and difficulties to a crisis, violates their own talent, and gives more value to problems than to solutions.
The real crisis is the crisis of incompetence. What holds back people and nations is laziness in seeking solutions and ways out.
Without crisis we lack challenges, without challenges life is routine, a slow agony. Without crisis there is no merit. It is in crisis that the best of each of us emerges, because without crisis all the winds are only light breezes.
Over-talking about a crisis means increasing it, and keeping silent in a crisis only enhances conformism, instead, let’s work hard. Let’s put an end, once and for all to the most dangerous crisis, which is the tragedy of not wanting to fight to overcome it.”
Albert Einstein – 1929
