Food bank benefiting from Favor Delivery launch

September 12, 2018

Favor Delivery has expanded their on-demand delivery company to Odessa-Midland and is celebrating their launch with a September fundraiser benefiting the West Texas Food Bank.

In honor of joining the community, the company will donate $1 to the West Texas Food Bank for every delivery made in Odessa and Midland this month and waive their delivery fees until Sunday, a Favor Delivery news release stated.

Favor provides customers that order through their website or phone app the option to have lunch, flowers, medicine from the convenience store, dry cleaning or a bottle of wine delivered in under an hour with no minimum order requirements, the release stated. Transactions are completely cashless. All payments require the use of a credit or debit card.

Favor is an Austin-based company in more than 80 cities across Texas. They were recently acquired by H-E-B and their services for Odessa-Midland will include beer and wine delivery, exclusively from H-E-B, with the delivery fee for those orders waived until Dec. 31.

Contract delivery drivers, known as runners, serve as a personal assistant and can be texted throughout an entire delivery. All runners are screened and go through a background check process before they begin to run Favors, their website states. Locals looking to earn an extra income can also apply to become a runner on Favor’s website.
