Uber donates 3,500 meals to Cooper University Health Care staff

As a way to thank healthcare workers on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic, Uber is donating 3,500 free meals to employees at Cooper University Health Care.

Cooper employees will receive a promo code they can use to receive a free meal up to $25 on the Uber Eats app or through the Uber Eats website (www.ubereats.com) for an estimated value of more than  $87,000 total.

“We are most thankful for this generous donation,” said Robert A. Ortiz, Jr., JD, Interim Director & Vice President of Development for The Cooper Foundation.  “This is a perfect example of how corporations and businesses are supporting our healthcare workers, and I thank Uber for their incredible partnership and willingness to supply a free meal to those who are working around the clock at Cooper.”

“We’re proud to play a small role in supporting the courageous frontline healthcare workers at Cooper University Health Care and first responders fighting the COVID-19 epidemic across New Jersey. All of us are in this fight together,” said De’Shawn Wright, Senior Manager for Public Policy at Uber.  

Each code can be used once for up to $25 off an order from Uber Eats. To use the code, an individual opens the Uber Eats App and adds their item to the cart from whichever restaurant they choose. The individual, upon moving through the checkout process, will add the specific code where it says “Add Promo Code”

The 3,500 free meals is part of Uber’s larger commitment to provide 10 million rides and food deliveries to healthcare workers, seniors, and people in need.

The Cooper Foundation established a COVID-19 Assistance Fund in response to numerous requests to support Cooper University Health Care during the pandemic.
