At the moment, the whole country is united to battle against COVID-19. Behind the health practitioners on the front lines, many businesses, institutions and individuals are taking on their own responsibilities and contributing to the battle against the coronavirus. WI Harper Group-backed GrubMarket is working closely with healthcare professionals to provide fresh produce and care packages to frontline health care professionals.
Founded in 2014, GrubMarket offer foods and other items at wholesale prices to customers with the best online food e-commerce experience possible. GrubMarket also offers foods from local farms, fisheries, commercial kitchens, certified home kitchens, and restaurants. WI Harper led GrubMarket’s $25m Series C1 round of funding back in April 2019.
Due to the impact of COVID-19, our community has 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.
In an effort to do our part to support our community and our frontline heroes, GrubMarket will work closely with healthcare professionals to provide fresh produce as well as 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.
