Located in the heart of the traditionally underserved community of Anacostia in Washington D.C., Grubb’s Southeast Pharmacy and Mini Mart seeks to be a problem solver in the neighborhood. Founded in 2012, it focuses on improving community health outcomes and reducing emergency room visits by providing convenient compliance packaging, monitoring adherence to maintenance medication, and offering free delivery throughout D.C. It also aims to address the food desert problem in Anacostia by partnering with D.C. Central Kitchen to sell fresh produce at lowered prices.
Additionally, Grubb’s Southeast hires local residents, and its contribution to the Anacostia community does not stop there. The company plays an active role in the Anacostia Business Improvement District and in the city’s Emergency Preparedness program. It also provides free Naloxone inhalers to help reduce deaths due to opioid overdose as well as immunization and flu shots.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the pharmacy pivoted to offer curbside COVID-19 testing and prescription pickup and expand its prescription delivery program to reduce in-store foot traffic.
