Uber Eats 优食开展的合作
Since 2020, Uber has partnered with EatOkra in the US to support Black-owned restaurants and further enhance their experience on the Uber Eats and EatOkra platforms. We worked together on pop-ups in Harlem, NY, and Washington, DC. And in 2023, we’re expanding our partnership to include EatOkra’s Restaurant Accelerator and Dine Diaspora’s Black Women in Food Initiative.
Uber Eats partnered in 2021 with world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson to create an original web series based on his book The Rise, which celebrates Black cuisine and Black chefs around the US. In addition, Uber Eats donated $500,000 to Samuelsson’s Black Businesses Matter Matching Fund to support local Black-owned businesses.
2021 年，Uber Eats 优食与地方倡议支持公司 (LISC) 携手为美国小型企业捐赠了 450 万美元，帮助他们应对 COVID-19 疫情带来的挑战。其中，88% 的捐助款发放给了有色人种人士经营的企业。
2021 年，Uber Eats 优食联合 Enterprise Nation 及 Be Inclusive Hospitality 携手在英国推出了 Black Business Fund（黑人企业基金）。该计划为 10 位受到疫情严重影响的黑人餐厅所有者提供了资金、培训和辅导。其中，每家黑人经营的小型企业获得了 £5,000 的捐助，这为他们发展业务提供了重要的助推力。
We plan on continuing our support of Black-owned businesses in the following ways:
Expand partnerships with EatOkra to launch EatOkra’s Restaurant Accelerator and with Dine Diaspora’s Black Women in Food Initiative to continue supporting Black businesses in the food industry.
Partner with Operation HOPE in its 1MBB program to support one million Black businesses by 2030.
Collaborate with LISC to establish the Black Restaurant Fund to support Black businesses’ access to capital to pursue growth and expansion opportunities. This fund builds on our recent Grants for Growth program with LISC, which prioritized entrepreneurs of color. Learn more
Grow support for Black-owned restaurants in the UK with a new £250,000 fund. Twenty-five restaurants from across the UK will each receive £10,000 grants, a free Enterprise Nation membership to access support for their business, a free Be Inclusive Hospitality membership to join a fast-growing professional network for people of color in the hospitality sector, and access to e-learning courses covering important topics like making sales, accessing finance, creating a brand, and motivating a team.
If your restaurant is a Black-owned business in the US and you’d like it to be identified on both platforms, please tap the buttons below to complete the submission forms.
Once both forms are completed, we’ll add the “Black-owned” tag to your restaurant on Uber Eats. For additional information, please see Uber Eats’ help page and EatOkra’s help page.
