Generous Deli in Saratoga Doing Free Holiday Dinner- No Questions Asked!

We love Daniel Chessare the owner of Saratoga's Broadway Deli in Saratoga Springs. Hard-working and outspoken, he's never shied away from speaking his truths when it comes to his restaurant, his customers, or anything else on his mind.

Chessare is also the man behind an annual holiday tradition in the Capital Region that he hopes will leave few in our area hungry.

It's a big undertaking but one that Chessare takes very seriously.

It's the fourth year in a row for Chessare and crew

Chessare and the crew will be working overtime prepping meals they'll generously give away for free to anyone who would like one - no questions asked!

A recent Facebook post shared hundreds of times stated:

"Food insecurity is no joke and it’s only made harder by inflation. So we will do our part to help out the best we can. So we are happy to announce our fourth annual chicken dinner giveaway."

Those in need may take home a whole chicken or a single-serving chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and gravy for free.
