You can now have food delivered from black-owned restaurants with no delivery fee for the rest of the year. Uber Eats made the announcement on Twitter saying it's a response to users' requests to be able to find black-owned restaurants.

Uber employees used publicly available sources to determine which restaurants are owned by black entrepreneurs.

Uber Eats has seen its growth more than double each year. It's a bright spot in the company's ride-hailing business which is down 70 percent from a year ago.

Food delivery competitor Postmates is also offering delivery from black-owned restaurants with no delivery fees. It allows customers to help identify such restaurants by tagging them.
