McDonald’s ‘Kindness Kitchens’ Serve More Than 100,000 Meals in the Philippines
April 16, 2020
During this unprecedented time, McDonald’s restaurants around the world have had to shift the way they operate. Through the Ronald McDonald Bigay Tulong initiative, or RMHC Philippines’ disaster response program, some McDonald’s franchised restaurants have been transformed into “Kindness Kitchens” - places where meals are prepared for people fighting or affected by COVID-19.
In partnership, McDonald's franchises in the Philippines and Ronald McDonald House Charities Philippines (RMHC Philippines) have served more than 100,000 meals to health care workers in more than 55 hospitals across the country through the Kindness Kitchens. Partner organizations help deliver the meals. They have also served marginalized communities and frontliners like law enforcers, employees of the Philippines Department of Health, Department of Social Welfare and Development, and Department of Labor and Employment. The goal is to ultimately reach and serve thousands more frontliners and Filipinos in need during this crisis.
These Kindness Kitchens are just one way that McDonald’s and Ronald McDonald House Charities Philippines are working together to support COVID-19 relief efforts. RMHC Philippines is accepting donations to support the disaster recovery program and the Kindness Kitchens at RMHC.org.ph/donate.
This is a challenging time, but our impact is greater when we work together.
