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.

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.
