Last month, getting around Portland got weirder with Lyft’s launch. This month, we’re delighted to announce that we’ve teamed up with Meals on Wheels People as one of their Adopt-A-Route partners in the Rose City.
With our shared vision of connecting people through transportation, drivers delivered meals to homebound seniors and spread Lyft love last week. Meals on Wheels People serve over 5,000 meals per day, helping prevent seniors from going hungry or experiencing isolation.
Portland drivers were proud to unite to distribute meals, smiles and conversation. Driver Aleksandr noted that the most rewarding part of working with this organization was seeing the gratitude on the seniors’ faces when something as simple as a hot meal was delivered to their door.
A special thanks to Aleksandr, Jan, and the other Portland drivers who volunteered. We can’t wait for more drivers to join in and help connect communities through transportation — here’s how you can help!
