As the country continues to adapt to new behaviors, on-demand food delivery service Foodpanda has been spreading good vibes by ensuring the safety and well-being of their delivery riders who many people now consider as modern day heroes especially during this pandemic. During the quarantine, the demand for food deliveries skyrocketed, and unfortunately, this demand came with a steady rise in order cancellations and no-show customers. The riders, however, are never expected to shell out any money—the company itself shoulders these expenses.

To make sure that they can always stay connected, the company partnered with telecommunications providers Globe, PLDT-Smart and Cherry Prepaid for exclusive deals to help its riders save up on their data consumption and communications expenses. They were also given discounts in gasoline stations, tires, and many more. Riders have been thoroughly trained in new practices such as contactless delivery and sanitation. Rain or shine, riders are provided with weather gear for the season. Lastly, to make sure that their riders really have good vibes, the riders were given insurance in partnership with Manulife and Cebuana Lhuillier. 

That said, you can be sure that the foodpanda rider delivering your favorite food and essentials is enjoying not just the job, but all the perks and benefits that come with it. This National Heroes Month, they're definitely being treated like the heroes they are especially during these times.

To mark 57 years of being in the country, Mondelez Philippines thought to strengthen bonds with its team and its community. The company’s actions are guided by its purpose to empower people to snack right; with the right snack, for the right moment and made the right way. Though unable to gather its 480 team members at this time, a virtual celebration will be held where the team will share what they’re thankful for, how they remain "Driven at 57," and have delicious snacks to celebrate with. Special thanks will also given to the brave food frontliners who continue to make and sell the Company’s snack products, to ensure consumers continue to enjoy deliciousness in their homes. 

For the community, Mondelez Philippines wanted to give thanks to the health front liners who are offering their lives in the service of the country at this time. Collaborating with partner Rise Against Hunger, the company shared its chocolate and cheese products to 57 hospitals in Metro Manila, including those in its home city of Paranaque, as well as others in surrounding cities of Muntinlupa, Quezon City, Manila, Pasay, Makati, Navotas and Valenzuela.

The majority of people in the report say that snacks are just as important to their mental and emotional wellbeing as their physical wellbeing. By sharing these snacks, it is the company's hope that they can bring bright spots to health frontliners’ chaotic days.
