Uber Eats is working doing its part to assist restaurants that may be struggling due to the Province’s recent recommendation that they close all dine-in options and exclusively offer take out options.
To help alleviate the burden some restaurants are feeling, Uber Eats has announced it will be waving delivery fees for all independent restaurants across Canada and the U.S.–which is more than 100,000.
Further, Uber Eats has adopted additional precautionary measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, which include:
- Contactless deliveries: To help you feel confident about safe delivery, we’ve made it easier to have food left at your doorstep, and are working to provide delivery people with sanitization materials. As always, your food items aren’t touched once they’ve been packed by the restaurant.
- Helping affected delivery people: We continue to support the delivery people and drivers who earn with Uber on a regular basis with financial assistance in the event of a COVID-19 diagnosis or exposure.
- Supporting our community: We’re committing 300,000+ free meals on Uber Eats to health-care workers and first responders in the U.S. and Canada. We know that the work of medical and crisis response teams can be tireless which is why we want to help even in a small way.
