Grubhub (GRUB) announced on Friday that it was temporarily suspending commission payments up to $100 million from impacted independent restaurants nationwide during the coronavirus outbreak. The news comes as part of a collaboration between the food delivery service and mayors of large U.S. cities.

According to Grubhub, the move will offer “immediate and substantial cash flow relief” to eligible restaurants, which were said to be the majority of the 350,000 locations that the company has partnered with.

“Independent restaurants are the lifeblood of our cities and feed our communities,” Matt Maloney, Grubhub founder and CEO, said in a statement. “They have been amazing long-term partners for us, and we wanted to help them in their time of need. Our business is their business -- so this was an easy decision for us to make.”

Restaurants are expected to see their dine-in traffic reduce by as much as 75% in the next few weeks due to COVID-19, causing them to rely on pickup and delivery orders to stay in business, Grubhub said. Grubhub is also offering contact-free delivery services.

“We have seen revenue decrease in the past week as a direct result of our customers staying home,” Darnell Johnson, owner of Chicago's Home of Chicken & Waffles, said in a statement.

In addition, Grubhub has set up a fund that will go to charitable organizations to support restaurants and drivers impacted by the coronavirus. The Donate the Change program allows diners to round up the change from their order and donate to Grubhub’s Community Relief Fund. Grubhub said it will match all donations made to the fund, which has raised over $1 million to date.

Shares of Grubhub stock were up 0.65% as of 1:19 p.m. EDT on Friday.
