Delia’s Alexandria, a Mediterranean and pizza restaurant in the Eisenhower Avenue corridor, announced it will provide meals to the National Guard during Inauguration Week. That equates to 15,000 meals per day being prepared in the restaurant’s kitchen. Because of this massive undertaking, the restaurant will be closed from Jan. 16 to 21. It will reopen on Friday, Jan. 22.
According to patch.com, “The restaurant also put out a call for volunteers on its Facebook page. Volunteers are needed from Jan. 18 to 21 to help assemble the 15,000 meals. The arrival time is 9:15 a.m. for a shift between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Volunteers should wear black pants, a black T-shirt or polo, and comfortable tennis or kitchen shoes. Interested volunteers can email George@eatdelias.com.”
As per patch.com, “Other restaurants have stepped up to feed National Guard members in recent days. Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen is providing meals to the National Guard, while DC restaurants We the Pizza and Chiko partnered to feed members.”
