Announcing Lyft's Grocery Access Program

Lyft was founded on the belief that cities should be built around people, not cars. As such, Lyft is committed to empowering local organizations doing incredible work to make communities stronger, healthier, and more equitable.

With only three grocery stores in Wards 7 and 8 (of 49 in the District) serving over 150,00 residents, Lyft appreciates how difficult it can be for people to have reliable access to fresh, healthy produce and staples for their family. That’s why Lyft has partnered with community leader, Martha’s Table, to launch the Lyft Grocery Access Program and meaningfully engage in DC’s food ecosystem.

The Grocery Access Program will provide local families with $2.50 Lyft Shared rides to all three grocery stores in Wards 7 and 8 and The Market at Martha’s Table. During a six-month pilot period from January through June, families with children enrolled at seven participating elementary schools will receive fifty $2.50 flat fare rides for traveling to and/or from Giant (1535 Alabama Ave SE), Safeway (2845 Alabama Ave SE), Safeway (322 40th St SE) and the lobby market at Martha’s Table (2375 Elvans Road SE).

Through the program, Martha’s Table and Lyft aim to reduce the time, transportation barriers, and financial burden as hundreds of families plan their shopping trips to select grocery providers, and further Lyft’s mission of improving people’s lives with the world’s best transportation.
