Ramadan this year is certainly very different from what we’re used to.

We may not be able to visit relatives, local mosques or bazaars this year, but it doesn’t mean you can’t have a blessed, meaningful Ramadan within the limitations of the Circuit Breaker.

To make the most out of the situation, #GrabRumahdan is here to help keep traditions alive while you stay safely at home this 14 May7 June!

But before that, please spare some time for a quick PSA...

This is because many of our Muslim delivery-partners will be heading home earlier for iftar with their families. 

Here are a couple of things you can do to help make their jobs a little easier during this fasting month, and ensure a timely GrabFood delivery.

We thank you for your patience and kind understanding!

Eat local. Be a hero!

Times are tough for small food business. But you can help support them AND enjoy yummy homegrown, halal cuisine by ordering in from the Local Heroes category on GrabFood!

Here are some halal-certified, Muslim-owned independent eateries that are perfect for iftar:

Every order from a Local Hero helps keep their businesses going and brings them closer to a joyous Raya celebration, making every meal all the more meaningful. 

You can also help out your favourite indie businesses by giving them a shoutout on social media. Post up your favourite local dishes and restaurants on Facebook and Instagram with #LocalHeroes, and we just might repost it on our socials.

Miss the sights, smells and tastes of Ramadan bazaars?

We can’t bring you to a bazaar, but we’ll try our best to bring the bazaar experience to you.

Enjoy great savings on delicious Ramadan deals from these brands: 

To order, just tap on Grab Ramadan e-bazaar banner on your Grab app, or the button below!

Spread goodwill and kindness, in just a few taps.

As most of us do our part by staying home, brave delivery-partners across Singapore do theirs by working extra hard to deliver food across the nation. This sometimes makes it hard for them to get their own meals and arrive home in time for iftar with their families.

So we’ve cooked up a simple way you can show them your appreciation, in just a few taps. From 11 May7 June within selected hours, we’ll be working with these 14 yummy, halal-certified restaurants to make it easier for you to buy your delivery-partner a meal:

Just follow these simple steps…

The restaurant will pack your delivery-partner’s meal in a separate bag. Let your delivery-partner know what you’ve bought for him or her, so they know which bag is theirs. 

You should do so via call or GrabChat, as deliveries should remain contactless for the time being to ensure the safety of both you and your delivery-partner.

Want to give your delivery-partner some duit raya instead?

Alternatively, can leave a tip and some kind words for him or her once your order is complete.

At the end of your completed cashless food delivery, simply give a 5-star rating and select one of the predetermined amounts to tip the delivery partner. (Note that, the option to tip will not appear for 1 to 4-star rated food deliveries.) 

Tipping follows your cashless mode of payment selected for your order. Hence, you’ll not be prompted to tip a cash order. However, you can always delight your delivery partner by tipping in cash. 

You can tip your delivery partner up to 72 hours upon completion of an order via the Activity tab in your app. 100% of your tip will go to the delivery partner. 

Whatever you choose to do, your thoughtful gesture is sure to make your delivery-partner’s day!

We may be further apart, but that doesn’t mean we can’t stay connected.

If you’d like to share how you’ve been making the most of this Ramadan, post up videos, photos, or posts of your experience and ideas with #GrabRumahdan on your socials!

It can be about anything: your favourite foods, recipes, decluttering hacks…it’s all up to you.

We’ll feature our favourites on @GrabFoodSG, so if you’re curious how other Singaporeans are keeping Ramadan and Raya traditions going, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

GrabFood delivery-partner, Thailand

COVID-19 has dealt an unprecedented blow to the tourism industry, affecting the livelihoods of millions of workers. One of them was Komsan, an assistant chef in a luxury hotel based in the Srinakarin area.

As the number of tourists at the hotel plunged, he decided to sign up as a GrabFood delivery-partner to earn an alternative income. Soon after, the hotel ceased operations.

Komsan has viewed this change through an optimistic lens, calling it the perfect opportunity for him to embark on a fresh journey after his previous job. Aside from GrabFood deliveries, he now also picks up GrabExpress jobs. It can get tiring, having to shuttle between different locations, but Komsan finds it exciting. And mostly, he’s glad to get his income back on track.
