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.
We plan on continuing our support of Black-owned businesses in the following ways:
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.
