Ethnic grocery delivery for UD students

Imagine you’re in a foreign country and want to prepare a common meal from your childhood. You’re struggling to find the nearest supermarket that has those specific foods and ingredients that make this meal so special. 


On top of all this, COVID-19 hits. 


The Potluck team is building an ethnic grocery delivery service that partners with local ethnic grocery stores to provide international students convenient access to the food items they know and love. As of now, the startup has established itself as a small business and needs to ensure that operations will be running safely and smoothly at the University of Delaware. This entails acquiring insurance, running the service in the most sanitary manner, and ensuring fluid transactions without any hiccups.


Unfortunately, we are all suffering in many different ways from this grand pandemic, international students included. But we are problem-solvers, and though this appears to be a time of uncertainty, it’s an opportunity to open our minds towards building solutions around the issues our neighbors experience that are blind to us in our daily lives. 


The Potluck team has received requests for service through their Facebook page PotluckUD  and personal messages, and intends to answer. With the team’s $1750 goal, they can get started.
