Coronado’s MooTime Creamery will get involved in the initiative for Ice Cream Relief Week on Memorial Day, May 25. From 6 to 7pm, MooTime will take over the Scoop San Diego Instagram.

“We can all use something to sweeten up our days in quarantine, and our answer is ice cream,” said Daniel Szpak, founder of Scoop San Diego. “Ice Cream Relief Week is our way of giving back to the ice cream and gelato shops that have brought us that joy over the years, and sharing creamy deliciousness with everyone, no matter what their quarantine lifestyle is right now.”
