United Way’s Ride United Last Mile Delivery initiative, in partnership with DoorDash, is a successful national program fulfilling food insecurity needs. As one of only 31 communities nationwide to pilot this initiative, United Way of Lincoln and Lancaster County brought Ride United to our community in the fall of 2020. Each week, Dashers pick up bags of shelf stable food organized by Pantry Partners like the Food Bank of Lincoln and deliver them at no cost to neighbors who are unable to access food on their own, including veterans. In 2021 alone, the program made 9,800 deliveries in Lincoln and Lancaster County.
In 2022, United Way has a goal of facilitating 10,000 deliveries in Lincoln and Lancaster County through the Ride United program.
