DellaJ's Delectables Fundraiser

$1,705 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 15 people in 55 months

We specialize in food inspired by Della's teachings.
Pure. Simple. Delectables.

Message from Jerry:

The name, Della J's Delectables, was inspired by my mother, Della, who along with my father, Lee, provided the inspiration for everything I do. I added my own modern twist to some of my mother’s old world recipes and included a few new favorites, thus Della J’s was created.

My love for food was crafted out of the need to cook for myself at a young age. From there, I perfected my dishes and shared them with family and friends. I love seeing the look on their faces as they take their first bite from a dish I have created; that alone is worth all the hard work it takes to prepare these delicious foods.

My wife, Lydia, the backbone of this operation, has assisted me in the kitchen for years; she is the manager behind this business. My sister Judy, who has always believed in me, has been instrumental throughout this venture. As a team, we are eager to share our passion for good food beyond our family and friends.

Thanks to those who have previously contributed to our fundraiser and to our future contributors.  We look forward to serving you in our new restaurant at 6558 Backlick Road, Springfield, VA 22150 (opening August 2017)
