Who says this Easter and Passover can’t be just as memorable as the rest? Even though we are all safely deciding to celebrate the holidays self-isolating, there are still plenty of opportunities to make 2020 special. Everyone has their own ways and traditions of celebrating the spring-time occasions, but one thing that always is for certain is the practice of sitting down with your loved ones and enjoying a meal. Although times are a bit different this go-around, the option to experience a delectable dinner for both Easter and Passover is still the same. Here are a few places in the City of Brotherly Love that are offering Easter and Passover dinners for pick-up and delivery in 2020.
