Food Drive with the Greater Chicago Food Depository

Thanksgiving marks a time to reflect, give thanks, and give back. We’re grateful for the opportunity to be a part of the community in Chicago, and we are committed to making a positive impact. In the spirit of the season, we are thrilled to announce our partnership with the Greater Chicago Food Depository for the second year in a row. Last year, with your help, we were able to donate over 2,000 pounds of canned goods. How many pounds will we donate this year, Chicago?

This Tuesday, when you’re ready to ride, request FOOD DRIVE. Bring along the canned goods you’d like to donate, and we’ll deliver them to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.


    • Tomorrow (11/10), request FOOD DRIVE between 8am and 2pm
    • When your Uber arrives, give your donated canned goods to the driver. The Greater Chicago Food Depository recommends donating 3 items for maximum impact
    • After your driver takes you to your destination, we’ll bring your donations to the Greater Chicago Food Depository*
