Restaurant industry roundtables
Our restaurant roundtables bring industry leaders together to share insights on issues of importance to restaurants today.

Grubhub’s Donate the Change program
Since launching in 2018, Grubhub’s Donate the Change program has given our diners an easy and powerful way to support charitable causes and public interest organizations across the country. Thanks to the generosity of our diners and Grubhub’s match, we’ve raised over $40 million.
Over the years, we’ve supported organizations including No Kid Hungry, World Central Kitchen, Restaurant Strong Fund, National ACE, National LGBT Chamber of Commerce and more. Explore details on our current support efforts, access COVID-19 resources and learn more about our partner charity organizations here.
Grubhub Driver Grant Program
We created the Grubhub Driver Grant Program to support Grubhub delivery drivers who are creating meaningful change in their communities through education, civic engagement and philanthropic work. So far we’ve awarded $10,000 grants to 30 recipients.
Grubhub founded RestaurantHER in 2018 to help female chefs and culinary leaders navigate and overcome barriers to success. Fewer than 7% of head chefs are women. We hope to help change that inequality through RestaurantHER, a home for women-led restaurants and their inspiring stories.Learn more at RestaurantHER

Who does the Grubhub Community Relief Fund help?
Donations to the Grubhub Community Relief Fund seek to provide financial relief for our restaurants and drivers. With this fund, contributions through our Donate the Change program—which has raised $18 million to date—go to charitable organizations that support restaurants and drivers. Organizations we’ve supported through this fund include the Restaurant Strong Fund, World Central Kitchen and many others. More details and a full list of organizations we’re supporting can be found here.
How does Grubhub contribute to the relief fund?
Grubhub matches 100% of Grubhub+ member donations on Grubhub+ eligible orders.
What other ways does Grubhub provide community support, both locally and nationally?
In addition to our Donate the Change program, RestaurantHER and restaurant industry roundtables, Grubhub works to give back to communities in multiple ways. Here are a few other ways we work to make an impact.
- Grubhub Sound Bites concert series combines our love of food and entertainment with an opportunity to give back. Past concerts have raised over $1 million for World Central Kitchen, Restaurant Strong Fund and others.
- Grubhub Driver Grant Program supports Grubhub delivery drivers who are creating meaningful change in their communities through education, civic engagement and philanthropic work. So far we’ve awarded $10,000 grants to 30 recipients. Learn more.
- Grubhub employee involvement programs offer Grubhub employees paid time to volunteer in their local communities, match personal donations up to $3,000 and allow unused meal perks to be donated each week, giving our team regular opportunities to make a difference.
How does Grubhub decide on the organizations and areas of focus that the fund will support?
We have an internal task force responsible for researching organizations that we can partner with to help us support those in need. Our task force also works with local officials and experts in these areas of need. Most importanlty, we work to strike a balance between the communities we’re supporting (our restaurants, drivers and diners in need) and national and local markets with severe needs. We’ll continue to evaluate a variety of organizations as additional funds become available.
