Unwanted Uber Eats Deliveries Are Piling Up in Los Angeles
The residents of Range View Avenue in the Highland Park neighborhood have received multiple Uber Eats deliveries they did not order.
The mysterious deliveries started in February, and many residents told the LA Times that some folks got many deliveries daily.
At the time of writing, nobody knows who is placing these orders. In response, Uber Eats assured customers it is investigating the issue.
What do the LA residents say about the mysterious Uber Eats deliveries?
The people of Highland Park have been receiving food from an unknown buyer for a month. Also, residents say they mostly come from Starbucks and McDonald’s.
Will Neal was one of the first people who received several deliveries. He received the first batch on February 25: four Mickey D’s McGriddles.
At the time of writing, 40 deliveries reached Neal’s door. He told the Los Angeles Times, “It is kind of remarkable what they are able to do with a pancake sandwich.”
Also, Caroline Aguirre told Inside Edition, “I just started getting bags of Starbucks and McDonald’s deliveries on my front porch, and I did not order them….”
“There would be time when it would be like five or six in a day, and then, like, two in a day, and then five the next day.”

On the other hand, skeptical folks did not chow down on the free food. Another LA resident named Dean Sao told the LA times, “I don’t trust it. I’m throwing it out.”
“I don’t know who’s doing it. We were joking at first, ‘It must be Elong Musk. I don’t know who else could afford it.’”
Others like Morgan Currier couldn’t consume the unknown Uber Eats deliveries because they did not correspond to her diet.
Currier said, “I’ve been getting 20-piece nuggets with sweet and sour sauce. What a waste… to send it to a vegetarian.”
Moreover, she recalled a friend who had a problem with the strange Uber Eats deliveries while talking to the LA Times:
“I had a friend who I would text: ‘Come on over and grab it.’ And then even he said, ‘I can’t keep eating 20-piece chicken nuggets. I’ve reached my limit.’”
