Uber Will Donate Over 300,000 Meals To Healthcare Workers

16 March 2020

Uber is currently providing meals for first responders and health-care worker in the US as they work to help contain the spread of the coronavirus.

In an interview with Sqwuak Box Uber’s CFO (Chief Financial Officer) Nelson Chai shared that the company is “going to deliver over 300,000 meals for health officials and first responders who are on the front line.”

According to the ride-hailing company it will be looking to aid first responders and health-care workers due to its belief that the “work of medical and crisis response teams can be tireless, and the hours long,” especially during a period such as the one we’re encountering.

Uber is also working towards adding more outlets to its Uber Eats delivery list. As governments continue to enforce policies that demand the closure of restaurants, bars and other meeting areas Uber is hoping it can keep other businesses profitable and functional.

At this moment the United States has confirmed upwards of 3,800 cases and the deaths of 69 people due to the coronavirus.
