Mekeni’s food donation program continues through December
MEKENI Food Corporation has partnered with Caritas Manila and pledged food donations to families affected by the Covid-19 pandemic until the end of the year.
As part of his Bayanihan Packs program, Mekeni started donating food packages to the Catholic Church charity in July and pledged to do so on a monthly basis until December.
“We must play our part in immediately helping our fellow Filipinos who have been severely affected by the pandemic. We hope that through this program, together with our consumers, we can reduce the number of Filipinos who suffer from hunger during this difficult time, ”said Mekeni President Prudencio Garcia.
The main food processing company in central Luzon invites its consumers to participate in the program by allowing them to donate a food pack worth 70 pesos when ordering products via Mekeni Home2Home delivery on Facebook or Viber . The food pack includes rice and an assortment of Mekeni products such as hot dog and longanisa.
“With their help, our customers not only bring food to their tables, but they also help feed other families, one Bayanihan Pack at a time,” Garcia added.
Mekeni has also extended its aid to frontline medical and non-medical people through donations of various food items.
“Bayanihan is embedded in Mekeni’s DNA. That’s why in everything we do, we always strive to improve the lives of our communities. We hope that through this initiative, we can encourage fellow Filipinos to keep the bayanihan spirit alive and make a difference in the lives of others, especially now that we are in a difficult situation caused by the health crisis ”, said Garcia concluded.
