UberCHEF Seattle: Dine In to Drive Out Hunger
Earlier this week we raised #3MillionMeals to support No Kid Hungry and now we are hoping to reach #1MillionMore to help eliminate child hunger in America. We are ending this incredible week of giving with a crowd favorite—UberCHEF! Seattleites love their food, so this evening we are bringing gourmet to your doorstep. Go ahead…get fancy.
Today, we’re teaming up with Kitchensurfing, the online marketplace for chefs, to offer you a delicious on-demand experience where professional chefs come right to your door and prepare a gourmet meal for you and friends! Savor the moment because one dinner makes a big difference – every dollar goes directly to No Kid Hungry.
Request UberCHEF Friday, December 12th to have a chef arrive and prepare a meal for you and friends!
HOW IT WORKS
- Open up your Uber app tonight, at 6 PM
- Request the CHEF option in the slider at the bottom of the app
- If a Kitchensurfing chef is available, you will receive a phone call to confirm your party size, location, and whether anyone has any dietary restrictions
- No cash needed—you will be billed right to your Uber account
When: Friday, December 12. Request for dinner between 6-9 PM
Where: UberCHEF is available in the Seattle UberCHEF Service Area only. Once you request and are connected to a chef, he or she will arrive at your requested location and prepare dinner for you and your guests
Who: Your UberCHEF request may serve between 4 – 8 people
Cost: UberCHEF is $50 per person, for four-courses.
Availability: Demand for UberCHEF will be high, so please be patient. If you don’t get CHEF the first time, keep trying!
PRO-TIP: Split the bill with friends using the Fare Split option in your app.
Each chef has crafted an exclusive four-course menu inspired by holiday favorites. (Think beef short ribs with a red wine and beef stock braise, or Winter kale salad with cranberries and pecans!) This is not your traditional holiday meal, but rather an elevated take on classic seasonal dishes with each chef bringing his or her own special flare and flavors. Find a full list of participating chefs here.
That’s not all—for some, it will even get better. Many chefs support the No Kid Hungry campaign, and we are thrilled that celebrity chefs Tom Rhyneer, Darin Gagner, Andrew Schenck, Aubrey Jenkins, Olive Huang, Michael Agbanlog, Meredith Abbott, Gaspare Trani, Josh Derr, Jason Midwood, Logan Niles, James Brownsmith, Hamid Majdi and Michelle Martinez will be lending their culinary expertise by curating special menus for a few lucky UberCHEF diners.
One dinner can make a big difference and every dollar directly benefits No Kid Hungry and the goal of #1MillionMore. Instead of making a reservation, consider dining in to drive out hunger this evening.
Thank you for your support. Bon appetit!

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.
