The Coca-Cola Co. and UberEats have are partnering provide up to 5 million meals through Feeding America’s hunger relief program as the country struggles to recover from COVID-19.
For every order placed through Uber Eats until June 28th, Feeding America will get a donation to provide one meal to a person in need.
“As the effects of the pandemic continue and millions of Americans struggle to access their next meal, we’re proud to partner with Coca-Cola and Feeding America to offer relief to some of the hardest hit populations,” director of social impact at Uber, said in a joint release. “Since the beginning of our relationship with Feeding America, we’ve donated enough for 10 million meals, and now we’re taking it one step further and calling on Eaters to help us give an additional 5 million meals with Coca-Cola.”
Research from Feeding America shows that an additional 17.1 million people could experience food insecurity this year, up 46% from a year ago.
