Waymo and Google Support Feeding America

by Mike Hunter

Along with a $250,000 donation that Google.org made to United Food Bank, dozens of volunteers from Waymo and Google packed food boxes for the food bank. Autonomous Waymo Via trucks transported the boxes to a warehouse for distribution to families throughout the Valley. Google’s donation was part of a national initiative where Google.org donated $10 million to Feeding America (United Food Bank falls under this organization and is the local food bank) to deliver 50 million meals nationwide this holiday season.

Why Google Supports Food Banks

  • “Where to donate food near me” saw an increase of 1,350% in Google searches.
  • Searches for “food bank donation” increased by more than 100% over the last five years.
