By Sueli Shaw, DoorDash’s Head of Social Impact
At the onset of the pandemic, we announced a partnership with United Way Worldwide through our social impact program Project DASH.
We are proud to share the milestone of 100,000 deliveries of food boxes and household supplies to vulnerable populations in 175 U.S. communities in partnership with United Way and its local chapters. This milestone also represents one million meals delivered to people in need.
Addressing tough challenges takes collaboration and partnership, and at DoorDash, we’re grateful for the opportunity to work with impactful partners like United Way to increase access to food and essential items in our communities. Last but not least, we celebrate and thank the Dashers on the front lines, making these deliveries possible and connecting people to the meals and supplies they need every day.
