Project DoorDash

(DoorDash Acts for Sustainability and Hunger). An initiative that started in 2018 focused on tackling hunger and food waste in the local communities served. Leveraging DoorDash’s passionate employees, last-mile logistics technology, and a network of millions of Consumers, hundreds of thousands of Dashers, and tens of thousands of Restaurant Partners across more than 600 cities, Project DASH consists of the following:
Donate one meal through the Feeding America® Charity for every order placed on DoorDash’s website, Android, or iOS app through January. To amplify this effort, DoorDash leveraged the company’s national merchant footprint and invited one Restaurant Partner each month to join in the "one-meal for one-meal" initiative in 2018, with plans to extend further in the future.

One in eight Americans face hunger, and this meal match ensured that Feeding America® help more families and individuals put food on their tables.
WeDash For Good: Since DoorDash launched seven years ago, employees have "dashed" each month to keep employees connected to the experience of Customers, Dashers, and Restaurant Partners.
Reducing Food Waste: DoorDash introduced a pilot program that pairs the company’s logistical expertise with Feeding America® Charity’s MealConnect system. MealConnect serves as a hub for food donations, linking surplus food with local nonprofits that can use it to feed those in need. DoorDash will use one of its core competencies — specifically DoorDash Drive, the enterprise-fulfilment arm of the business — to help bring surplus food to local food banks through the MealConnect system. The integration of DoorDash Drive with Feeding America® Charity’s MealConnect program brought together the nation’s platform for fulfilling on-demand delivery requests with the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization.
