Food delivery companies now serve Wards 7, 8 after D.C. “Eat-in”

WASHINGTON, D.C. - After a Ward 7 resident started a petition for food delivery companies to serve all eight wards in the District, the community rallied together for an "eat-in" on Friday.

Originally, the "Eat-in for Equal Service" was created to demand all food delivery companies deliver to addresses east of the Anacostia River.

However, their campaign turned into a celebration after all targeted companies, Postmates, Caviar, and DoorDash, expanded their services into Wards 7 and 8.

"We WON the campaign, and this "eat-in" has become a celebration! You can now order freely from any of the three companies," wrote Spenrise on the event page.

Latoya Watson, who started the campaign, ordered Shake Shack from Postmates to her work Friday to celebrate the "eat-in."

"I want to thank diners, the supporters, the neighbors, everyone for giving out this message. It's been awesome," said Watson in a video posted to the event page.
