Delivery Drivers

By signing up for this service, you agree that GetFoodNYC can share your name, phone number, address, and any access restrictions or instructions (locked outer gate, broken buzzer, etc) with food vendors and delivery drivers working with GetFoodNYC to ensure the food is delivered to you.

GetFoodNYC will never ask for money or credit card information to complete deliveries. If this happens, submit feedback to GetFoodNYC as soon as possible with the phone number of the person who requested this, if available.

Delivery Cancellations

To prevent waste, GetFoodNYC will cancel deliveries when vendors’ drivers report the following scenarios:

  • Delivery was refused by the client 
  • Unable to deliver 2 consecutive times 
  • Client was not at the location (moved/deceased) 
  • Client requested to be removed from program or have their deliveries cancelled 

GetFoodNYC will contact clients who have had their deliveries cancelled and offer them an option to continue service.

    • Dates that you worked delivering food
    • Route ID numbers that you delivered food to (this on your receipt)
    • Any information that you believe is important for your claim
