Local ceviche bar offers meals to furloughed federal employees after shutdown ends
Zona Blanca Spokane

Zona Blanca has joined the myriad of local businesses helping federal employees during, and now after, the government shutdown.

Chad White, the head chef and owner of the ceviche bar, posted on Instagram about the offer on Monday.

Even though the shutdown has come to an end, for the next two weeks (Jan. 28 to Feb. 11) from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m., federal employees and their families can enjoy a hot meal for free. However, because the establishment is a 21 and older venue, they ask that an adult come inside to grab that meal as take out.
