ORLANDO, Fla. – The NBA is working with 10, minority-owned restaurants in the Orlando area to keep all the staff and players in the NBA Bubble fed.

All 22 teams are finishing the rest of the season at Walt Disney World’s ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. The players and staff are living in what’s known as the NBA bubble to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

A league representative said the NBA is working with 10 local, minority-owned restaurants for the campus delivery program.

“Several have been onboarded in accordance with NBA-required health and safety protocols and have begun accepting orders via the NBA Campus app,” an NBA coordinator said. “We’re continuing to source additional restaurants and minority-owned vendors to provide catering services as needed for team dining experiences.”

News 6 previously spoke to the owners of 1000 Degrees Pizza and Seana’s Caribbean Food, restaurants that are part of the NBA bubble delivery program.
