Supporting Foodsters through COVID-19

Ontario has announced a State of Emergency and Toronto is shutting down restaurants and bars except for delivery and take-out. Foodsters United understands that while you’re engaging in social distancing you will still want to take care of yourselves and your families by placing orders through Foodora.

As couriers and most delivery workers go to work during this time we ask that you think of us and take a couple easy steps to keep us safe, and supported.


  • Please respect low contact delivery and social distancing. That means asking your courier to deliver to you in a way that doesn’t require you to interact with each other.
  • Sanitize your doorbell and front door area frequently including your mailbox for all delivery workers (and our sisters and brothers who are postal workers!)
  • Always tip and tip well. Foodsters income is supplemented by tips, sometimes significantly so. We are taking risks to continue to be out in the public, please let your tip reflect that. Given that there is an advisory against using cash, you need to enter your tip when you place the order. Tipping through Foodora is not as obvious as it should be - so take the extra time to make sure you add it from the get-go.
  • Please be mindful of the distance between your delivery address and the restaurant you’re ordering from. While couriers may normally enjoy the challenge of travelling 4.5 km uphill, at this time a reduced travel distance is appreciated.
  • Support our collective efforts: Now more than ever workers need protections and unions to fight for our health and safety. Foodsters are organizing for better working conditions. Please support us! Visit and show your solidarity.
