Working Together to Drive Out Childhood Hunger
The holidays mark a time to reflect, give thanks, and give back. We’re grateful for the opportunity to be a part of more than 150 communities across the United States, and we are committed to making a positive impact in each of these cities. In the spirit of the season, we are thrilled to announce our first national giving campaign, in partnership with No Kid Hungry, to help eliminate child hunger in America.
One in five children in the United States struggles with hunger, impacting their ability to learn, play and create.
No Kid Hungry connects kids in need with nutritious food, and helps families learn to cook healthy, affordable meals on tight budgets. At Uber, we are proud to be able to connect millions of Uber riders to this worthy cause through our platform.
Today, we are pledging to help drive out hunger by making a donation from Uber and raising funds this week to provide #3MillionMeals to children in need. As part of this effort—and for the first time ever—Uber riders will be able to make a $5 donation within the Uber app to support No Kid Hungry.
“Uber and No Kid Hungry are both driving change through innovation. Together, we have the ability to maximize our impact and break new ground in ending childhood hunger in America.”
— Billy Shore, founder and CEO of Share Our Strength
We are also teaming up with top tastemakers to offer users other innovative and delicious ways to contribute during the festive holiday season.
Here’s the full menu—available this week only:
Access to proper nutrition is important to help kids grow and reach their full potential. We hope you will join us in supporting No Kid Hungry via the Uber app this week during the giving season. We’d also like to recognize our driver partners whose work delivering rides all across the U.S. will allow these meaningful contributions.
We’re excited to see what kind of impact we can have when the Uber community works together to make a difference.

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.
A little over a year ago, we set out to put a new spin on an old classic–make reliable food delivery available at the tap of a button. Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
This flu season, we’re delivering free flu-fighting care packages across the country. When you receive a pack, you’ll have the option to request a free flu shot from a registered nurse–for up to 5 people.
