Restaurant Flooded With Business After Launching an 'Adopt a Doc or Nurse' Catering Service

Restaurant Flooded With Business After Launching an ‘Adopt a Doc or Nurse’ Catering Service

A California restaurant has found a compassionate way of keeping their business open while simultaneously caring for hospital staffers fighting the novel coronavirus outbreaks.

In addition to continuing their takeout and delivery services, the Tootsie’s restaurant at the Stanford Mall in Palo Alto has been using their catering services to feed doctors and nurses at their local hospitals.

Since Tootsie’s owner Rocco Scordella launched his ingenious “Adopt a Doctor or Nurse” program earlier this month, community members have commissioned his restaurant to prepare and serve more than 2,000 meals to various hospital departments in the Bay Area.

“Even the first day was 750 requests. I was like oh my,” Scordella told KRON News. “I’m gonna be busier than when I’m actually open so its good. It’s really good to see the community coming in.”


Not only has his catering program been helping to feed hospital personnel during the COVID-19 outbreaks, the influx in business has also helped Scordella to rehire a number of staffers who he had been forced to lay off at the start of the shutdowns.

He now hopes that other businesses around the world will implement the Adopt a Nurse or Doc program in their own restaurants as a means of support hospital workers during the pandemic.
