Help us Fight Hunger

September 9, 2016 / Arizona

Uber Food DriveWe are joining the fight against hunger this September during Hunger Action Month by teaming up with our friends at St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance to make donating food quick and convenient.

This Thursday and Friday, with the touch of a button, a driver will come to your location, pick up food donations and deliver them directly to a local donation center – all for free. Plus, for every completed request, Uber will donate an additional $10!

How it works:

  1. Start collecting non-perishable food items or host a food drive at work! View the top 10 most wanted food drive items here.
  2. Open your Uber app on Thursday, September 15, and Friday, September 16 between 10am to 2pm 
  3. Request ‘GIVE’ at the bottom of the screen
  4. An Uber will arrive to pick up your items and drop-off your donation to a local St. Mary’s center free of charge

The Details:

All food items must be non-perishable for drivers to accept your donation

Please keep in mind drivers can’t leave vehicles unattended, please bring your food donation out to meet your driver when they arrive.

Pickups will be in high demand, be patient if cars are not available right away.

Those who are not able to donate on September 15 and 16 can still participate by dropping off food at any of the following donation centers between 8 AM and 5 PM on Monday, September 19, and Tuesday, September 20. Be sure to mention that you are dropping off food for the Uber Food Drive!
