Doordash, Masbia deliver Kosher meals for Passover

Masbia, a nonprofit soup kitchen network that provides nutritious meals for New Yorkers in need, has partnered with DoorDash to deliver groceries in Queens and Brooklyn to families facing food insecurity via Project DASH, the company’s initiative to enable food banks, food pantries and social impact organizations to leverage DoorDash’s last mile logistics.

DoorDash has already made nearly 2,500 deliveries since the start of the partnership, which launched in February, with plans to make over 1,000 weekly deliveries for families that Masbia serves.

The partnership addresses a need for expanding access to kosher food for members of the Orthodox Jewish communities in Queens and Brooklyn, providing groceries that meet religious dietary restrictions. Fresh produce, dairy products, eggs and more are included in the deliveries.

Brooklyn and Queens are among the boroughs with the largest populations facing food insecurity, according to the New York City Office for Food Policy.

“DoorDash is proud to partner with Masbia, an organization that New Yorkers in need have been able to rely on for over a decade, to power the delivery of groceries and kosher food,” Sascha Owen, senior manager of Government Relations for DoorDash, said. “This partnership is part of our ongoing work to broaden food access through Project DASH and underscores the importance of businesses and community leaders coming together to break down barriers and meet our most vulnerable neighbors where they are.”

With 38 million people facing food insecurity in the United States, DoorDash is continuing its ongoing work to broaden food access to vulnerable communities.

The company has delivered thousands of charitable meals to New Yorkers in need through Project DASH, which enables food banks, food pantries and social impact organizations to leverage DoorDash’s last mile logistics to carry out their mission.

Last year, the initiative reached over 1 million deliveries, serving more than 21 million meals in more than 900 cities across the U.S. and Canada.

“We have seen firsthand the challenges to meeting the growing need for getting food to our neighbors in need — especially by providing dignity to people by eliminating their breadline experience one family at a time,” Alexander Rapaport, executive director at Masbia Soup Kitchen Network, said. “DoorDash’s commitment to making a community-wide impact and understanding of the urgency for addressing food insecurity speaks to their pledge of being a reliable community partner.”

DoorDash is inviting New York City organizations interested in working together to expand its existing delivery efforts or brainstorm how delivery could enhance their programs to contact the Project DASH team.
