A Day of Volunteering

Last week we marked five years of operations in San Francisco. To celebrate with our community of riders we treated the city to five days of surprises—from Monday’s memorable rides on trolley cars, to Tuesday’s packed Castro Theatre viewing of Ms. Doubtfire, to a special serenade on Friday from MisterWives.

Last week’s milestone was a great reminder that we could not be more grateful for the continued support from riders, driver-partners, and community members. To close out the week, Uber employees participated in a Day of Volunteering across the city. We partnered up with the Department of Public Works, The SF Food Bank and Friends of the Urban Forest.

Employees from all departments including Engineering, Brand, and Operations participated in projects ranging from sorting food and supplies at the Food Bank, to cleaning up the streets of Mid-Market and the Tenderloin, to planting new trees in the Outer Richmond.

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–
