South Florida Gives Back with UberGIVE
Last month, we asked the Uber community in South Florida to help make a difference for the food insecure—and the response was overwhelming.
On Friday March 20th, South Florida riders could request a car via the Uber app (free of charge) to pick up food donations for The Pantry of Broward.
In just 4 hours, South Florida riders donated over 500 pounds of food for The Pantry’s shelves—enough to fill nutritional meal boxes for 10 families.
“We’re thrilled to have Uber in Broward,” said Pantry of Broward Director of Operations Lydya Chapman.
“Our partnership with Uber was a great success, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the South Florida community’s generosity. We look forward to providing local families with the collected food throughout the month of April,” said The Pantry’s Director of Operations, Lydya Chapman.
Huge thanks to all the Uber users who contributed food items and to our partners who keep this offering moving. (Especially Yoel, pictured here, who took the food to the pantry and stayed to help unload it!)
“We’re thrilled to have Uber in Broward,” Chapman added.
Stay tuned for more upcoming opportunities to GIVE with Uber.

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.
