Octopus is built on diversity, equality and inclusion. We stand with our Black driver partners and communities nationwide in the fight against racism, intolerance and injustice. In this time of crisis, it is our mission to uphold one another, and we wish peace, justice and safety for all those helping to connect communities, raise awareness and heal our nation.

Our team has compiled a list of Black-owned restaurants in each of our markets and surrounding areas to check out! We want to provide our drivers with recommendations of restaurants near them to support or share with passengers. Try something new and support a local Black-owned business next time you are in need of some food!
