    Homegrown brand, Soule Soup, will be giving away a special edition Lentil Soup to every rider who collects an order from their outlet.

    Through the various restaurants coming together to support riders throughout the month, the initiative aims to ensure that the Champions of Deliveroo that continuously dedicate themselves to delivering food receive multiple thank you gestures throughout their day.

    Deliveroo UAE Ramadan Initiatives

    This Ramadan, Deliveroo is dedicating its ‘Roo Vans’ to distribute meals to riders across the UAE. Making pit stops across the country, riders can now collect an iftar meal every week between 5 PM and 7 PM across Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, Sharjah, Ajman, and Ras Al Khaimah. In addition to giving away iftar meals, Deliveroo will be distributing over 10 thousand packages of biscuits and juices to agency riders from all Editions sites throughout the month.

    Deliveroo also launched a rider awareness programme ahead of Ramadan in partnership with The Permanent Committee of Labour Affairs and Mitun De Sarkar, a certified Clinical Dietician. The programme trained riders on health and safety regulations and hosted an educational session to ensure health and wellness throughout the month.

    Yazan Aburaqabeh, Head of Operations at Deliveroo said, “Delivery riders are a key part of our UAE community and every year during this important time, we aim to make sure their iftars are taken care of while they continue to do incredible work across the country. This Ramadan, we are overwhelmed by the number of restaurant partners who want to recognize those who dedicate themselves to keeping the city fed.”

    Deliveroo UAE is also organizing iftar events across five cities with riders as well as giving away gifts like Eid trips to travel back home, Ramadan bonuses and weekly bonuses to top performers.
