Emperador partners with AFP to lead massive feeding program for indigents
Answering the call to extend a hand to Filipinos in need, Emperador, Inc.—the world’s largest brandy company—sponsored three mobile kitchens of the Armed Forces of the Philippines as part of the latter’s massive feeding program initiative. Through the partnership with Emperador and other donors, the AFP Mobile Kitchen was able to prepare 9,000 hot meals for poor families in Pasig City, particularly in the areas of Caliwag and Villa Monique in Barangay Pinagbuhatan; Sandoval, Rodrigo, Villa Aurora, Riverside, Floodway Westbank in Barangay Maybunga; and various purok from Barangay Manggahan. “Our bayanihan spirit is what will bring us success during this time. Victory will be ours. We will celebrate again,” said Winston Co, president of Emperador Inc.
Abiding by the required safety measures and protocols, the house-to-house distribution of meals was conducted with the health and security of everyone observed as top priority.
“Thank you to Emperador for the trust and support. Who would have known that Emperador – the soldiers' brandy during happy hours – can also be a partner in our advocacy and in our bayanihan,” Lara added.
