There are global initiatives to end hunger and different campaigns have been set up to raise public awareness. Recently, FoodPanda Philippines pledged to donate a portion of every order or total food bill to support the cause and had a Rise Against Hunger Meal Packaging event together with the Department of Health Manila Head Office, for the indigenous communities in Candelaria, Zambales.
RAH Executive Director Jomar Fleras said that their personal mission is to end hunger in our lifetime by providing food and life-saving aid to the world’s most vulnerable and by creating a global commitment to mobilize the necessary resources. FoodPanda Philippines shares the same aspiration and pledges to donate a portion of every order or total food bill to support the cause. The partnership between these two global organizations started in 2015 and has gone a long way ever since helping and feeding the chosen beneficiaries who are mostly indigenous families.
Proceeds of the program are usually being spent to buy primary goods and necessities which are then being packed and delivered by volunteers to remote barangays and provinces nationwide. The meal packaging program has an assembly process involving the combination of rice, soy, dehydrated vegetables, and 23 essential vitamins and minerals into meal packets. Having a shelf life of two years, the food is stored easily and has to be transported quickly.
This year’s meal packaging event is hosted by the Department of Health Manila Head Office and gathered almost 2,000 meal packs for the indigenous communities in Candelaria, Zambales. “We believe that there is no small or grand gesture when it comes to helping out the community. Our collective effort will definitely go a long way, creating ripples of change, and making a big impact,” says Iacopo Rovere, CEO of FoodPanda Philippines.
