DC Gives Back
Since launching in DC nearly 4 years ago, we’ve been inspired by this city and are proud to call it home. We are committed to serving DC by connecting our communities, empowering local entrepreneurs, and partnering with local entities to help improve city life.
This Thanksgiving we’re proud to partner with the Capital Area Food Bank to support their efforts to take hunger off of the Washington area map.
On Tuesday, our local city team worked alongside Deputy Mayor Snowden to provide volunteer support to pack weekend grocery bags. These bags are just one way in which the CAFB addresses child hunger, which affects 1 in 3 kids in DC. The food is used as a supplement to children who receive free and reduced lunch at school and may miss out on access to nutrition on the weekend. The team was also able to assist with the logistics and transportation used to distribute bags throughout the community.
Our deepest thanks to CAFB for having us and to Deputy Mayor Snowden for joining us to support such a great cause. We urge you all to give back to the community—we all have the opportunity to make a difference.
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.
