Two days before its official launch on June 18 (Friday) in the country, over 2,000 BTS Meals were distributed to select hospitals and vaccination hubs through the McDonald’s Kindness Kitchen.

“Our medical frontliners have been working tirelessly to keep everyone safe throughout the pandemic. With the launch of the BTS Meal and the overwhelming support McDonald’s is getting from the public, we want them to be the first to enjoy the BTS Meal,” said McDonald’s Philippines President & CEO Kenneth Yang.

A beneficiary from Air Force General Hospital shared how McDonald’s, through the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC), has always been supportive of them, especially throughout the pandemic.

“Tuwang-tuwa po kami kasi hindi po nakakalimot ang McDo [Kindness Kitchen]. Ever since last year until this year, walang sawa sila sa pag consider sa amin [sa meal distribution]. Very privileged kami nauna sa BTS meal.”

Packed with 10-piece Chicken McNuggets, medium fries, medium Coca-Cola, and Sweet Chili and Cajun sauces inspired by popular recipes from McDonald’s South Korea, the McDonald’s treat will also be made available to the general public on Friday in all stores nationwide.

“We hope that this simple surprise for our medical frontliners, will give some encouragement and cheer, reminding them that we [McDonald’s] are here to support them as they continue to fight COVID-19 every day, protecting and keeping us safe,” Yang said.
