The taxi alternative, Uber is part of a campaign to raise money for No Kid Hungry, an organization aiming to eliminate child hunger in America. Today they are teaming up with Sbraga for a one-day UberLUNCH pop-up.

Between 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., you can order a Vadouvan Chicken Salad Sandwich prepared by Sbraga and have it delivered in the same amount of time it takes to get an Uber. The sandwich costs $10 and all of that money goes directly to No Kid Hungry and the goal of #3MillionMeals.

You can order your UberLUNCH direct from the Uber app and delivery is available from the Delaware River to the Schuylkill River, from South Street to Vine Street.

Tonight: Kevin Sbraga’s Career Dinner Looks Amazing

SbragaCareerDinnerChef Kevin Sbraga is hosting a Culinary Career Dinner tonight at Sbraga, and with it, he will be representing his entire career as a chef with one 7-course meal. Sound a little like the schtick at Volver? Well yeah, it is. But this one is half as many courses and will only run you $85 per person (plus an additional $45 a head if you want beverage pairings).

Check out the menu and details after the jump.
