MIAMI-DADE – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Esteban “Steve” Bovo, in collaboration with City of Hialeah Councilwoman Katharine Cue-Fuentes and Uber Eats, will be offering free food to medical officials, healthcare workers, and first responders at Hialeah Hospital.

I thank Uber for offering free food for those who are at the front line of the war against the virus.”

“The coming weeks will be challenging for all of us, and Uber is committed to working with our communities at large to keep people safe,” said Uber Public Affairs Manager Javier Correoso. “We thank the team at Hialeah Hospital for everything they are doing for our community.”

“I am very grateful that Uber Eats has recognized Hialeah Hospital’s frontline staff and their tireless hard work helping treat this global pandemic,” said Michael Bell, CEO of Hialeah Hospital. “Here at Hialeah Hospital, we will continue serving our community as we always have, and together with our community partners we will get through this.”
