Split The Bill NY, the charitable initiative that reduces the costs of dining out to support local restaurants, is expanding to Valley Stream this week.
The program, created by the Sidgmore Family Foundation, reimburses customers for 50 percent of their meal up to $30 at participating restaurants.
Split The Bill NY, which debuted in the Village of Farmingdale last month and drove over $40,000 in retail spending to participating eateries, begins in the Village of Valley Stream on June 11 and in the Village of Westbury on June 24. The effort, which is aimed at driving business to restaurants struggling due to the national health crisis, will expand to more areas on Long Island over the next few weeks, according to a Split The Bill statement.
“After seeing the success of the Village of Farmingdale campaign, we’re hopeful about the positive effect Split The Bill NY will have on our local restaurants,” Valley Stream Village Mayor Edwin Fare said in the statement.
Customers who order takeout, delivery, drive-through or dine-in from any of the participating restaurants listed on the Split The Bill NY website can submit a form confirming purchase of their meal and they will receive a reimbursement for 50 percent of their restaurant receipt up to $30 within three to seven days.
