Our Impact Programs
Our Impact Programs
We are committed to the communities where we operate, and we look to our core business to understand how we can achieve the greatest impact in the communities we serve.
Serving Those Who Serve Our Diners
We support independent restaurants through partnerships with a variety of organizations, through joint initiatives and grants.
Working with The Greg Hill Foundation’s Restaurant Strong Fund, in 2021 nearly $10 million in grants were given to almost 9,000 restaurants across the country. Ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, the grants helped restaurant owners fund indoor and outdoor dining improvements, equipment and technology maintenance and upgrades, marketing and promotion efforts, staff hiring and training, COVID-19 compliance, and infrastructure improvements.
We also work with organizations like the National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, National ACE and Feed The Soul to support hospitality workers from underrepresented communities.
Delivering Support to the Grubhub Frontline
We offer an annual grant program for our drivers. To date, we’ve given 50 drivers across the country $10,000 each to help them create meaningful change in their communities.
We’ve also helped to protect and support our drivers throughout the pandemic by offering two weeks of sick pay to cover medical expenses and lost income; free protective gear like hand sanitizer, masks and gloves; and launched contact-free delivery.
Building Connections and Nourishing Communities is Who We Are
We look to our core business to understand how we can achieve the greatest impact in the communities we serve.
That’s why we created the Grubhub Community Fund, a Donor Advised Fund at a national sponsoring organization. Donations to the fund, including those from our diners through our Donate the Change program, will go to local and national organizations that support independent restaurants, our delivery partners and the communities we serve.
In addition, we are committed to helping eliminate food insecurity across the nation and aiding the 13.8 million food insecure children in the U.S., by partnering with organizations like local food banks and local Boys & Girls Clubs. We work with our restaurant partners and non-profits to help eliminate food waste and reduce the use of single-use plastic.
