US-based food ordering marketplace Grubhub has announced spending USD 30 million to support 100,000 independent restaurants in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak.

Grubhub said each restaurant will receive USD 250 that will allow them to offer USD 10 discounts off any order of USD 30 or more. Grubhub estimated that the funding could help generate about USD 100 million in restaurant sales. Thus far, Grubhub said restaurants participating in its current promotions during the crisis have seen sales jump 30%. Grubhub said it was also teaming with Verizon Business to feed frontline healthcare workers at six hospitals in New York City.
