Uber Eats has announced that they will support independent restaurants through the Coronavirus Pandemic by waiving delivery fees.

Uber Eats has announced that it will waive delivery fees for independent, local restaurants.

“We know that the coming weeks will be challenging ones for many small business owners, and we want to help restaurants focus on food, not financials.” said Janelle Sallenave, head of Uber Eats Canada and US.

Delivery and takeout options are available even as Canada shuts down its non-essential businesses, and Uber Eats is raising awareness about their contactless delivery options, in which orders are sealed and left on the doorstep.

This move will help the restaurant industry which is in dire straits from the fallout of the Coronavirus pandemic, especially to the 90% of restaurants which are small, family-owned, with 50 or less employees, who typically operate on razor thin margins even during good times.

Uber Eats has made a further pledge to provide Health Care Workers with 300,000 free meals, and to provide financial assistance for delivery people who have been diagnosed with the Coronavirus or asked to quarantine.
