I am a junior at the University of Maryland, College Park. I reached out to Mark Travis my freshman year about creating kosher options for the Jewish Community at UMD. I was greeted with such enthusiasm from Mark, that I opted to meet with him in person at the University’s Hillel to discuss the option of GroceryU procuring kosher meat and dairy.
As a student that lives in a kosher apartment, it is quite difficult to obtain meat and protein that satisfies a kosher diet. The closest supermarket is a 25 minute drive away, and many students do not own a car. Mark’s service, which offers free delivery on-campus, has truly been a blessing for our community. GroceryU establishes communication with the students when the delivery is in transit, so that the logistics are easier on our end to handle. The prices are fair, service is great, and quality immaculate.
