Humans of Covid-19 AU: Anja & Michael

Description (Dublin Core)

“We make freshly baked scones for farmers markets and small events. Everything is made fresh on premises. We have been doing this for 9 years.
We have been massively impacted by COVID-19. In about 2 weeks we probably lost about 80% of our markets, everything fell away from under our feet. However, we have found another way - we have tapped into social media in order to offer free delivery in our suburb, it has been hugely successful, we did not anticipate this. On saturday, there was a small market, then we did 30 deliveries in one afternoon!
At the beginning, we were anxious about the uncertainty and we did not know if we could continue with the business at all. The uncertainty was the worst. Also the timeframe was challenging, we were supposed to be working at a market in the Dandenongs for 30 days continuously. But that was cancelled. So all our business calculations were thrown out.
All my family is in Germany, which is quite tough at the moment. There’s a lot that I'm missing out on. Sometimes life throws you curveballs, and you just have to deal with it.”

Instagram post on Anja & Michael, scones food truck, and their experience during the pandemic, which was created by a psychology student living in Melbourne who was interested to hear about how COVID-19 was impacting on different peoples’ lives.
