Aside from satisfying our cravings by delivering our favorite food day in and day out, the hardworking men and women from foodpanda recently went out of their way to bring aid to disaster-hit areas in the Philippines.
Dozens of foodpanda riders and staff recently helped out the victims of typhoon in Tacloban, Leyte and the victims of Taal Volcano in Tagaytay by creating the Global Soup Kitchen. According to a statement from foodpanda, “Global Soup Kitchen aims to help families and children by bringing smiles to these affected people through the warmth of food”.
The people behind the online food delivery service were able to serve and feed 300 families and 1,200 evacuees in Tacloban and Tagaytay.
This isn’t the first time foodpanda has reached out to do their share for the common good. In the past, they have partnered with orphanages and communities in Manila, Cavite, and Cebu to feed over 1,000 children with special needs.
The delivery service’s statement reads: “As a food delivery service, foodpanda will continue to make food more accessible, especially to the less fortunate and victims of calamity through the Global Soup Kitchen. With each success it has, the company will continue to give back, and bring its mission of giving good food to everyone as plans is still waiting to happen for these people.”
