BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Thanks to a new program launching this week, Virginia Tech students and staff members can now enjoy their favorite lunches from Blacksburg restaurants without even leaving campus.
According to a statement released by the university on Tuesday, Sept. 15, “Blacksburg Delivers” was created through collaborative efforts between Virginia Tech, the Town of Blacksburg, the Blacksburg Partnership, and the local restaurant community in response to a need for more convenient yet socially-distant dining options for the Hokie community.
Officials say the Blacksburg Delivers program will operate from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. The following restaurants are reportedly participating in the program:
- Blacksburg Wine Lab
- Cabo Fish Taco
- Hethwood Market
- Marco & Luca
- Top of the Stairs
You can check out the Blacksburg Delivers website for a list of participating restaurants, which is set to be updated on an ongoing basis.
Virginia Tech offered the following directions for how to place and pick up orders through Blacksburg Delivers:
- “Visit https://blacksburgdelivers.com.
- Select the restaurant you’d like to order from.
- Select the pickup date and time. Currently, there are two pickup times to choose from: 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Orders will be held for an hour-and-a-half.
- Select ‘Derring Hall’ or ‘Litton-Reaves Hall’ before you select the food you will be ordering. This will ensure the meal goes to the on-campus pickup spot you select.”
- “Visit the Derring Hall overhang (second floor outdoor area facing the parking lot) or the parking lot behind Litton-Reaves Hall (if driving, enter the lot from Life Sciences Circle; if walking, walk down the path/stairs between Litton-Reaves Hall and Wallace Hall from West Campus Drive).
- Show your Hokie Passport or government-issued ID.
- Pick up your food.
- Enjoy at one of the many outdoor spaces on campus, in your residence hall room, or office.”
According to officials, orders must be placed 12 hours in advance, and debit and credit cards serve as acceptable payment methods.
