Jollibee Group Foundation Partners with NGOs to Help Families Affected by the Pandemic

A lot of families have been affected by the ongoing pandemic and for this reason alone, the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) partnered with NGOs- Samahan ng Nagkakaisang Pamilya Pantawid (SNPP) and the Affiliated Network for Social Accountability-East Asia Pacific (ANSA-EAP) to provide more than 200,000 food packs to families in Luzon and Visayas.


"In times of crisis, access to food is always a major concern. During this pandemic, the spirit of bayanihan is very much alive and we are humbled by how Filipinos from all walks of lives came forward to find ways to bring assistance during these uncertain times," said Gisela Tiongson, JGF Executive Director. "Being mindful of social distancing while doing food distribution required new ways of doing things. Our NGO partners, including SNPP and ANSA-EAP, made it possible to deliver food quickly and directly to the homes of those who need it most."

SNPP is an independent organization whose parent-leaders are also members of the Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. It has 80,000 household-members nationwide. ANSA-EAP, on the other hand is a resource facility for social accountability that also happens to partner with SNPP in providing leadership and skills-building seminars.

"Dahil matibay na samahan ng SNPP, mahusay ang naging distribution-- organized at may social distancing. Natuto ang parent-leaders sa tamang pagdi-distribute," said SNPP President Jaina Catacio. "Sa mga beneficiary, hindi akalain na matutugunan ang tawag tiyan."

From March 15 to May 10, 2020, the Jollibee Group and its NGO partners have served over 3.8 million meals to frontliners and families across the country.

"Even now when the community quarantine restrictions have been eased in many regions, many families still need our help," continued Tiongson. "Together with our partners, we are exploring more ways to help even more families."

In line with this mission, the public is encouraged to take part in the FoodAID Program. Coin banks that is usually found in the counters of Jollibee Group stores will now be available online. Donations to the digital coin bank will be used to bring meals directly to the affected families through the help of JGF's partner NGOs.
