We’re thrilled to announced a partnership with DoorDash, leveraging their logistical services and network of restaurants to expand our food rescue efforts and help power MealConnect. MealConnect serves as a hub for food donations, linking surplus food with local nonprofits that can use it to feed hungry people. DoorDash will provide last-mile delivery and support between restaurants, smaller shelters and food banks, adding a valuable transportation component to the MealConnect platform. To help reduce food waste and power deliveries to food banks, DoorDash will use it’s enterprise arm — DoorDash Drive, the platform that enables a merchant to offer delivery to customers that have placed orders directly with the restaurant, including catering orders. The integration of DoorDash Drive with Feeding America’s MealConnect program brings together a platform for fulfilling on-demand delivery requests with the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. A special thanks to the DoorDash employees, restaurants, and Dashers who have developed this pilot and fulfilled these important deliveries!
