We've been trying to get delivery as often as we can, and at least one co-worker has told me he's doing the same thing. We can't ourselves save the local food economy, but I'm hoping enough people will do it to keep them afloat for now. Richmond is a fantastic food town, and I'd hate to lose that, to say nothing of all those people losing their jobs.

On that note, there was already an announcement that one restaurant downtown was in the process of selling to a new owner, but that the deal fell through as soon as COVID became a thing.
