ON the occasion of its fifth anniversary in the Philippines, foodpanda, an online food delivery system, brings good food to people in a totally different way when it launched its Global Soup Kitchen campaign recently.
It has become a tradition for foodpanda to extend its mission to deliver good food to those who need it the most every time it celebrates its anniversary. In 2018, when it marked its fourth year of operations in the country, the foodpanda team partnered with Elsie Gaches Alabang, an orphanage for special children, to bring warm meals to 300 special children. This year, foodpanda continues to extend its helping hand to children by embarking on two Global Soup Kitchen missions—one to Cavite and another to Cebu.
The first one took place at the Vermosa Sports Hub in Imus, Cavite, on July 14, 2019. Foodpanda, along with Football for Humanity, fed almost a hundred Muslim kids with food generously shared by its partners Yellow Cab, Krispy Kreme and McDonald’s. Azkal member Stephan Shröck joined in the fun and was instrumental in putting smiles on the faces of the recipient kids. He taught them football, a sport that Filipinos have come to love.
From Southern Luzon, the foodpanda team headed for the Queen City of the South, Cebu, where it joined hands with Rise Above Foundation to bring the Global Soup Kitchen to more kids on July 24, 2019. Together, they fed more than 200 children from Sambag Dos with food provided by top partner restaurants, which included Shawarma Shack, Koala Tea and Sunburst Fried Chicken.
On both occasions, fun-filled games and learn-and-share sessions for the children also kept the children busy and happy.
foodpanda aims to make its Global Soup Kitchen an annual anniversary campaign. With each success, the company will continue to give back and bring its mission of giving good food to everyone.
