Today we announced a multi-year partnership with Angel City Football Club (ACFC) that makes DoorDash the official front-of-kit sponsor and exclusive on-demand delivery platform partner for the team.
As part of the partnership, we will continue our commitment to empowering local communities by working with the team to address food insecurity in Los Angeles. To bring this commitment to life, we’ve partnered with CARE to identify local organizations that serve areas of LA in which the critical need for food outpaces the bandwidth of volunteers and staff distributing it. Through the CARE Package Relief program, which provides food and services while putting people back to work with paid on-demand jobs, and Project DASH, food will be collected, packaged, and brought directly via DoorDash to people in need. Through our work together, we’re committed to bringing an estimated 250,000 meals to those in need in 2021.
“Today marks a major milestone in the evolution of Angel City Football Club as we welcome DoorDash as our founding front-of-kit partner,” said Julie Uhrman, Co-Founder and President of Angel City FC. “DoorDash aligns with our mission to make a positive impact across Los Angeles and beyond. We are so moved to see them immediately mobilize our partnership by helping get meals to those across Los Angeles who may otherwise go without. This is just the beginning and I look forward to the impact we will make together in the years to come.”
“I’ve always loved the ability of sports to connect communities and make a positive impact. We are so proud to be the official sponsor of Angel City FC, a team that is working to build something truly powerful for female athletes globally,” Said Tony Xu, DoorDash CEO and Co-founder. “In addition to creating the ultimate fan experience, this partnership will uniquely merge food, sport, and culture as we work together to give back to the Los Angeles community we serve and level the playing field for all.”
As ACFC’s exclusive on-demand delivery platform partner, we’ve launched the “Be An Angel” initiative, inviting LA consumers to join us in supporting CARE’s mission as we work together to uplift LA and the businesses that help shape its culture. On launch day, February 18, DoorDash will donate $5 per order placed on the DoorDash platform from a list of participating local women-owned and led restaurants, up to a total of $15,000, to CARE.* Customers can find the list of participating local women-owned and led restaurants in the DoorDash app. This donation will be reinvested directly into CARE’s program to support Los Angeles food-serving organizations in distributing food to communities in need.
Over the course of our partnership, DoorDash and ACFC will continue to collaborate meaningfully to improve food-access for Los Angeles residents, while bringing unique authentic experiences to fans and food-lovers in the coming seasons.
*For every order placed on February 18, 2021 on the DoorDash platform from participating local woman-owned restaurants, DoorDash will donate $5, up to a maximum of $15,000, to CARE.
