McDonald's Philippines has launched the McDo Kindness Kitchen program that aims to serve 50,000 meals to frontliners and local communities affected by the coronavirus disease.
Through its charity arm, Ronald McDonald House Charities, select branches of the fast-food chain have dedicated the operations of their kitchens to prepare meals for medical health workers, LGU volunteers, police, government agencies, and local communities in need.
Each Kindness Kitchen makes 1,500 meals per day, prepared by restaurant crew, managers, and employee volunteers. Partner companies and organizations handle the distribution.
"We continue to reinforce our commitment to make a difference in the lives of Filipinos by providing aid to Filipinos in need during this very challenging time,” RMHC executive director Marie Angeles said in a statement.
Those who wish to support the program may donate to RMHC. Go to www.rmhc.org.ph or deposit through BPI—Account Name: Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Philippines; Account No. 3021-4107-47.
A meal per person costs P50.
McDonald’s ABS-CBN was activated as the first McDo Kindness Kitchen on March 20 to support ABS-CBN Foundation's Pantawid ng Pag-ibig program. There are three other McDo Kindness Kitchen operating in Las Piñas, Makati, and Cebu Escario.
Since March 15, more than 30,000 meals have been distributed to 40 hospitals and beneficiaries within Metro Manila and Mindanao.
