Ridesharing, now offering snacks. New York City-based Cargo just launched its app in D.C. and Baltimore that gives ridesharing drivers a chance to pick up extra money by offering snacks, chargers and health and wellness products.

“Our mission is to help drivers earn more by providing the best ride experience possible,” said Cargo CEO and founder Jeffrey Cripe. “For drivers, it’s an easy decision: Cargo costs nothing, we pre-pack each cargo kit, ship replenishments to your home, deposit money directly into your bank account and improve your ratings.”

Cargo claims that it can help  drivers earn up to $500 a month in extra commissions, referrals and performance bonuses.

“Everything you need is a tap away on your iPhone,” Cripe said. “For passengers, you never have to worry about your phone dying, riding hungover or suffering through that snack-less midnight ride from the airport.”

After raising $5.5 million, the company has a goal of reaching 20,000 vehicles by the end of the year. Along with New York, it’s also available in D.C., Boston, Chicago and Minneapolis.
