McDonald’s sets up ‘Kindness Kitchen’ for up to 200,000 Filipinos

The Ronald McDonald House Charities definitely takes to heart the saying, "kindness goes a long way!"

“Kindness always goes a long way.” This is a cliche saying that our parents and grandparents would say to us when we were little, and even now as adults. And the saying rings true—we will always remember how it feels to do something good, and the people we help will never forget the good we did for them.

One good example is the Kindness Kitchen set up by the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC)—the charity arm of McDonald’s Philippines. Their main goal? Provide food to frontliners from different institutions, quarantine centers, and communities daily. (Read: Bea Alonzo, Vhong Navarro prepare 500 meals for stranded UP students)

“As a response to our country’s current situation, we have opened the kitchens of McDonald’s stores in the service of our fellowmen,” RMHC said. Some branches of the fast food giant even dedicate their daily operations to prepare meals—and each branch can produce up to 1,500 meals every day!

The Kindness Kitchen had initially pledged 50,000 meals for individuals all over Metro Manila and some parts of Visayas and Mindanao. However, as of writing, this number has already quadrupled after Mcdonald’s was able to provide over 200,000 meals for people affected by the enhanced community quarantine.

“We continue to reinforce our commitment to make a difference in the lives of Filipinos by providing aid to Filipinos in need during this very challenging time,” says Marie Angeles, executive director of RMHC.

To make this project possible, RMHC has partnered with several corporations like ABS-CBN Corporation, Angkas Motorcyle Taxis, and the Coca-Cola Company are helping in terms of transporting the meals to different cities and provinces.

RMHC has also tapped big corporations such as Oishi, Metrobank and Metrobank Foundation, Paymaya, and Shopee for support and funding.
