Deliveroo is partnering with retailers including Pret A Manger, Co-op and Waitrose to provide support to communities and charities across the UK, with an initial pledge to deliver one million meals to families in need in the 200 cities and towns in which it operates.
As part of its new Full Life campaign Deliveroo will work in partnership with the retailers to deliver one million meals to Felix Project, FareShare and The Pret Foundation, who distribute surplus food that would otherwise go to waste. The food will be delivered to hundreds of charities – such as St Mungos, Lookahead, Centrepoint, and YMCA – as well as households and families in need.
It follows a similar campaign that saw the company deliver one million meals to the NHS and tens of thousands of free meals to families in need.
Will Shu, Deliveroo CEO and founder, said: “At Deliveroo, we want to use our unique network for good and play our part in supporting the communities in which we work. We don’t just want to ride through our streets – we want to support them and play an active part within neighbourhoods across the UK.”
Deliveroo will be announcing new projects and commitments throughout the year under the Full Life campaign.
