On-demand Food Drive #UBERIMPACT

The season of giving has arrived, and we’re here to lend a helping hand. To spread the love, we’ve partnered with our friends at the San Diego Food Bank to bring you the Uber Food Drive. We’re spinning up a specific vehicle option to give riders the opportunity to donate food with the tap of a button. #UberIMPACT

DATES AND TIMES:

Monday, November 24th from 2pm-7pm

Tuesday, November 25th from 2pm-7pm

Wednesday, November 26th from 2pm-7pm

Friday, November 28th from 2pm-7pm

HOW IT WORKS: 

1. Open your Uber app.
2. Select “Food Drive” in the vehicle slider.
3. Request a pickup of your non-perishable food items.

THE DETAILS: 

  • minimum donation of $5 will be charged through the app upon pickup.
  • Want to give more? Amazing! Simply let your driver know the total dollar amount you would like to donate.
  • 100% of donations will go to San Diego Food Bank.
  • Demand will be high. Check back often if your first request is unsuccessful.

Not going to be around for a pickup? Not a problem! You can also donate online at the San Diego Food Bank website.

 

WHY IT MATTERS:
More than 446,000 people live below the poverty level in San Diego County. That equates to a household income of less than $10,890 for an individual and $22,350 for a family of four.*

Last year, the San Diego Food Bank distributed 22.3 million pounds of food to San Diego County which is the equivalent of 18.6 million meals. 


We at Uber are committed to the cause and with your help, we can fight hunger in our city. Get your donations ready, open your Uber app, and help us feed San Diego this holiday season.

UberEATS: Using technology to build a reliable food delivery experience

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–
