Gopuff, the go-to platform for immediate delivery of consumers’ everyday needs, today announced a $100,000 donation to Feeding America®, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the United States, to support 10 local member food banks. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 38 million people, including 12 million children, are food insecure.
Gopuff’s donation will support hunger-relief efforts at Feeding America member food banks in New York; Philadelphia; Miami; Chicago; Washington, D.C.; Los Angeles; San Francisco; Seattle; Austin; and Nashville. The funds will be distributed equally among the 10 locations and help provide more than one million meals to people in need.
“We continue to be impressed by Feeding America’s dedication to providing relief for the millions of people that experience food insecurity,” said Rafael Ilishayev, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Gopuff. “We are proud to help advance the mission of this important organization, both through this donation as well as our long-term partnership.”
“Striving to meet people’s most urgent needs is the core of our business,” added Yakir Gola, Co-founder and Co-CEO of Gopuff. “Gopuff is committed to investing in and showing up for our local communities, and we hope that through this partnership with Feeding America, we can make an impact for those in need this holiday season.”
“No one should worry about their next meal, especially during the holiday season,” said Lauren Biedron, Vice President of Corporate Partnerships at Feeding America. “That’s why Feeding America is incredibly grateful for Gopuff’s generous donation, which will help member food banks provide more meals to neighbors in need.”
The donation builds on Gopuff’s long-standing relationship with Feeding America and on its shared commitments to support local communities, minimize food waste, and provide for people in need. Gopuff has partnered with Feeding America since 2019, donating hundreds of thousands of meals and dollars to local member food banks across the U.S. to help combat food insecurity.
