Community is at the heart of everything we do

Thanks to the millions of customers, Dashers, and restaurant workers who make our platform function, communities have a means to access food, earnings opportunities, and connection, even during these unprecedented times.


Maximizing earning opportunities for flexible work


Helping local restaurants thrive and expand


Keeping residents connected to the restaurants they love


Leveraging our platform for social impact

DoorDash has been one of the reasons why we’re still able to be in business right now.

- Justin Rosenberg, CEO, Honeygrow, Philadelphia

DoorDash did promotions without a fee; generated more customers for us. It used to be 25%, now we’re doing 50% of our regular business on DoorDash.

- Tee Tran, Owner, Monster Pho, Oakland

It warms my heart knowing that I’m helping bring food to people who can’t leave their home due to the pandemic.

- Deidre Birtchet, Contra Costa, Dasher

Because I am also deaf, with everyone wearing masks, I’m not able to read lips anymore. This job allows me to work while not feeling like I’m missing anything.
