The Community Credits program provides nonprofit organizations with DoorDash gift cards in order to help them empower the communities they serve, reduce food insecurity as a barrier for their target audiences, and encourage participation in programs that expand access to opportunity.

DoorDash is partnering with the International Rescue Committee (IRC) to provide meals and essentials to Afghan families and refugees resettling in the United States. In addition to donating $250,000 in Community Credits to the IRC, we’re inviting our customers and community to join the effort to welcome families with the most basic and urgent of human needs: food and shelter.
The DoorDash Community Credits ensure that youth have access to warm meals for themselves and their families and guarantees that they won’t have to show up to school, work, or a job interview concerned with whether they will be able to eat dinner that night.
Delivery is so important, especially for people with disabilities and their families. People with special needs and their caretakers often rely on delivery to get their food, or as a way to earn income. In addition to providing a vital service, DoorDash supports community organizations in Los Angeles County and are good corporate partners in the communities they serve.
DoorDash is one of the companies that shows through more than their words that they value our immigrant communities. They have shown through their actions and through their programs, such as Community Credits, and Kitchens Without Borders, that they support food accessibility for immigrants and refugees and will use their platform to help lift communities up.
As an extension of our work at the intersection of culture, community and commerce, we are honored to provide DoorDash gift cards to frontline workers and the community most in need, remembering the life and legacy of service of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
