The coronavirus pandemic has impacted almost every aspect of everyday living in America. Now, going out to a favorite restaurant or traveling around the country to try iconic dishes in the city where they were made famous is off-the-table. That’s where Goldbelly has stepped in to help people who wish they could travel and try new foods, or just have a taste of home when they might live on the other side of the country with their Givebelly City Subscription Box.
With each subscription purchased, 100 percent of net proceeds will go towards Goldbelly deliveries for healthcare workers, first responders, and other frontline workers. Cities that are currently included are New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Miami.
Subscriptions for each city are either three or six months, depending on your preference. So not only are you getting a sweet treat or savory lunch sent right to your door, you’re supporting local restaurants and frontline workers. Goldbelly kicked off the launch of Givebelly by donating 1,000 care packages to frontline workers.
“With each City Subscription, not only are you helping to support local restaurants, you’re also sending thanks to those going above and beyond the call of duty to keep us safe, while getting a delicious delivery of your own,” GoldBelly said in a statement.
So what comes in each box? Well, it’s always some of the featured city’s most iconic eats with enough food to serve four people, but it’s always a surprise. In fact, Goldbelly doesn’t let anyone know what’s coming each month until it gets to the doorstep. Think of it as the ultimate foodie gift from a friend, even if that friend is yourself.
Items that might be included in a New York City box might be a towering deli sandwich or homemade babka. Across the country in San Francisco you might get a loaf of the city’s famous sourdough or a bowl of seafood stew called cioppino. If you’re looking for a taste of the South then the New Orleans box might be what you’re looking for. From month to month it could be filled with famous dishes like gumbo and po’boys.
Givebelly City Subscription boxes ship nationwide and start at $79 per month plus shipping. That makes each person’s meal just under $20, which is typically much cheaper than ordering take-out. Plus you’re helping front-line workers get a delivery too.
