On April 2, LADOT announced a new effort to help restaurants and other foodservice providers cope with increased demand for pick-up and delivery options caused by the outbreak of COVID-19. With all dine-in services temporarily suspended, delivery and take-out options have become the only source of revenue for many Los Angeles area food establishments.
