Giving back to the community we love
As the holiday season approaches, we start to think about how we can give back to our local community. And, as it turns out, so do our driver-partners. Time and time again we hear from them just how much they enjoy giving back to the city they know and love. And so, we decided to join them!
Hunger impacts a large percentage of Edmontonians every month– especially children. So, we decided to head to the Edmonton Food Bank alongside some of our partners to sort food and build hampers for those who need them most.
Every month, more than 15,000 people receive food hampers directly from Edmonton’s Food Bank. The Food Bank also provides more than 400,000 meals and snacks to over 210 agencies, churches, and food depots. With approximately 40% of their clients under the age of 18, we were honoured to be able to give back to an organization that makes Edmonton a better place everyday.
A huge thank you to all of the awesome individuals who participated, and to the Edmonton Food Bank for providing us with the opportunity to make an impact in the city we know and love!

Whether you’re a freshman or a senior headed back to campus this fall, one thing is certain—you’ll need to eat. And there is nothing worse than being limited to questionable cafeteria food or taking a chance on expired leftovers in the back of the fridge. The best news? UberEATS is expanding to 30+ major college campuses by the end of the year, from Penn State to LSU to Boise State. Since we want you to focus on what you love about college and not worry about your next meal, we’re predicting the 5 times you’ll need to order UberEATS this semester.
We are excited to surpass the 100th city mark by welcoming two Brazilian cities, Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte, to the UberEATS family. From Atlanta to Warsaw, people have truly embraced this easy and reliable way to discover the food they love at the push of a button. Whether that’s an Indian inspired samosa, a good old-fashioned American burger or Vietnamese pho, people in 27 countries are using UberEATS to get a taste of the world’s flavors at the push of a button.
We’re excited to expand the Uber for Business platform beyond business travel, to include a world-class customer transportation solution, Uber Central. With Uber Central, organizations of all shapes and sizes can now easily provide on-demand, door-to-door transportation for their customers, clients, and guests.
