Supporting Immigrants and Refugees

To grow and empower local communities, we must ensure that people have equal opportunity to reach their full potential.

Supporting Afghan Refugees

DoorDash is partnering with the International Rescue Committee to provide meals and essentials to Afghan refugees. In addition to donating $250,000 in Community Credits to the International Rescue Committee, 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.

Supporting Immigrant-Owned Businesses

Immigrant-owned businesses play a crucial role in our communities. In the restaurant sector, immigrants own nearly a third of businesses.

Since 2019, DoorDash empowers immigrant and refugee merchants through Kitchens Without Borders and other Entrepreneurship and Access programs. Through these efforts we spotlight immigrant and refugee business owners, foster deeper connections to the people making the food we enjoy every day, and connect participating merchants to resources such as marketing, mentorship, and capital.
