In the summertime, one of many methods we like to benefit from the nice outdoor is to throw collectively a picnic with pals.
While all in-person gatherings bring risk, health experts say hosting a small, socially distant gathering outdoors is less of one. (Before you decide to host a picnic or any event, give this guide a read: How to host a get-together as safely — and graciously — as possible.)
If you are able to get to a park with appropriate distancing options or have access to a patio or yard, maybe you can have that picnic.
As for what to put in your basket, have no fear, Voraciously is here.
