COVID-19 Community Support Program

[shareaholic app="share_buttons" id="27983777"]

The rapid spread of COVID-19 has raided our nation and local communities unpreparedly and unexpectedly. It has changed our lives in unprecedented ways, people have lost their loved ones and their jobs, families could not be reunited, friends have been forced to stay 6 feet apart, and healthcare professionals have been battling this pandemic for countless days and nights.

Our communities have been experiencing an extraordinarily tough time, especially here in the bay area. This has been a wake-up call to all of us, and we have realized that no matter how fast technology advances, humans are still fragile. It is important, now more than ever, to come together as a community and to overcome this global pandemic side by side. 


COVID-19 Community Support Program

In an effort to do our part to support our community and our frontline heroes, GrubMarket has decided to launch a “COVID-19 Community Support Program” specifically dedicated to those who have been affected by the global pandemic. This past Sunday, GrubMarket Team has randomly selected 10 frontline healthcare professionals and put together care packages with our fresh produce as a token to show our great appreciation of their unyielding sacrifice. We understand how difficult these times could be for everyone, especially for those who are fighting on the frontline of COVID-19. As a part of the community, we hope to continue to provide care packages to other frontline heroes and to demonstrate to them that they are not alone in this battle.

We are all in this together, and we are willing to do our part to support and take care of them so they can continue to take care of all of us.

Thank You Letter from Our CEO, Mike Xu. 


Dear Hero,


These times are difficult and we at GrubMarket cannot stress our deep gratitude and sincere appreciation for the work you have been doing on behalf of all of us. It takes an astounding amount of courage, unfathomable sense of duty and absurd willpower to be able to be the selfless hero that you are every day. 


Nothing on earth can compensate for your sacrifice but we wanted you to know that we care about your wellbeing as well. Which is why we put together a care package for you as a small token of our gratitude. We hope to be able to provide more of these types of care packages to other frontline heroes so if you enjoyed your package, please let your brothers and sisters in arms know! We want to take care of you so that you can continue to take care of us. 


Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your adamant sacrifice and enjoy your package! 



Mike Xu 

CEO and Founder of GrubMarket
