Rally for Restaurants

Lackawanna College joins Scranton Tomorrow and the City of Scranton for Rally for Restaurants, an initiative that brings the community and organizations together to support local restaurants that are struggling due to the COVID-19 health crisis.

Lackawanna College’s student-run restaurant, 409 on Adams’ has opened its doors to participating restaurants, allowing the use of its talented student chefs, kitchens, outdoor event space, wait staff, food and beverages free of charge. The funds from meals purchased by you during Rally for Restaurants go directly to the participating restaurant to help offset funds lost due to capacity restrictions.

Dine at 409

We’ve made it as easy as pie to support your favorite local restaurants! You can enjoy a drink and dinner in our outdoor heated tents located on the patio at 409 on Adams. Our talented student chefs prepare menus, and each dining experience promises new, bold cuisines and styles to offer you the most memorable culinary experience.

Check this page for dates, restaurants and menus. Dining is by reservation only. Takeout is available.
