Don Mahaney is the owner of Scratch Food & Beverage in the Troy Hill neighborhood of Pittsburgh. When restaurants closed, he turned his upscale eatery into a corner bodega to sell necessities to the locals. Additionally, he and his staff took orders for pay-what-you-can meals that were either picked up or delivered with strict social distancing rules applied.
