On Demand Food Drive #uberimpact

We launched in Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard, and Gresham with a warm welcome from all four Mayors. In this short time, hundreds of people in the Portland suburbs have connected with safe and reliable Uber rides to get from place to place. We believe that being part of a community also means giving back. As we continue to become part of these great communities, we are actively looking for ways we can leverage the Uber app technology to make a greater impact right here.

That is why this holiday season, we’re thrilled to announce that we have partnered with the Oregon Food Bank for an On Demand Food Drive as part of Uber Impact.

Starting Monday, November 24th through Wednesday, November 26th, people looking for a ride in Hillsboro, Beaverton, Tigard and Gresham can also bring canned goods on their trip. Although Uber is not in Portland yet, Portlanders can still donate. Just download the app and request for your canned goods to be picked up.

HOW IT WORKS

  1. Open your Uber app from Monday, November 24th through Wednesday, November 26th between 2pm and 8pm.
  2. Request the Food Drive option in your app.
  3. When your Uber arrives, hand at least two canned goods to your driver.
  4. The driver will drop off your donation to the Oregon Food Bank.

WHY IT MATTERS

Everyday, 1 in 5 families in Oregon are unsure of where their next meal will come from. To help eliminate hunger, the Oregon Food Bank has distributed more than one million emergency food boxes, and now with your help, we can all contribute to fighting hunger this holiday season. As you head out, think about grabbing an extra canned good or two! Rally your family around you and your friends at work. Together, we can make a difference.
