To celebrate its 6th anniversary, on-demand food delivery service foodpanda has chosen to give back to modern heroes leading the country's battle against the COVID-19 pandemic.
foodpanda donated grocery packages to the local communities in Makati City, Taguig City, and Quezon City in Luzon, Cebu City in the Visayas, and Davao City in Mindanao.
foodpanda, through its grocery delivery service, foodpanda shops, distributed thousands of packages containing premium quality rice, canned goods, instant coffee, instant noodles, and cooking oil to frontliners.
Frontline workers who were able to receive the packages include emergency team responders, quarantine center personnel, garbage collectors, and street sweepers.
When the Enhanced Community Quarantine was still in effect, foodpanda also sistributed food packs to healthcare institutions through its food delivery service.
As COVID-19 restrictions eased, foodpanda still continues to serve the needs of families and communities affected by the pandemic as it now delivers groceries and essential items via foodpanda shops.
“Being on the frontlines of this pandemic and operating through ECQ and GCQ has opened our eyes to the plight of our fellow frontliners. Just as we value our riders who brave the streets every day, we wanted to show our appreciation for our quarantine center staff, garbage collectors and street sweepers who are literally keeping the country together," said foodpanda Philippines Managing Director Daniel Marogy.
"At a time like this, we, at foodpanda, believe it’s important to celebrate a milestone such as a 6th anniversary by sharing our blessings to these heroes,” he added.
The distribution of the grocery packs was done with the help and dedication of foodpanda employees and riders, soldiers from the Philippine Army, and local government units.
