Thank you, Uber Community, for #5MillionMeals to No Kid Hungry

Last week we announced our first national giving campaign with No Kid Hungry.  Our goal was to provide #3MillionMeals for children in need through a direct donation from Uber and – for the first time ever – by allowing riders to make a $5 donation within the Uber app to support this worthy cause.

We thought that goal was ambitious, but in just four days together, the Uber Community far exceeded it by donating funds to provide more than #5MillionMeals — a No Kid Hungry record!

Thank you to the entire Uber Community – we are inspired by your incredible generosity this holiday season. 

We are grateful to our generous riders who ordered UberLUNCHes, hosted UberCHEF dinners, and took DONATE rides all last week. And we extend our deepest appreciation to our driver partners whose hard work and dedication enabled tens of thousands of DONATE rides to happen.

“The Uber Community has delivered the most concentrated awareness effort and most significant  donation in the shortest amount of time we’ve ever seen from a new partner at No Kid Hungry.  Uber, its riders, and driver partners have shown us first hand the incredible power of their platform during this giving season. This is the kind of innovation and commitment that will help end childhood hunger in America.”

— Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength

It has been an amazing week, and together we are five million meals closer to driving out childhood hunger in the United States.


From the Uber family to yours – thank you and happy holidays!

300,000 meals were raised through UberLUNCH & UberCHEF + Uber made a direct donation of 1.5 million meals  + Uber riders donated 3.25 million meals through the Donate option  = 5+ million total meals for No Kid Hungry
