Jollibee Group Foundation Partners with Community Groups to Help Feed Families in Need

Many families have been severely affected by the ongoing pandemic,reason that the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) partnered with the Samahan ng Nagkakaisang Pamilya ng Pantawid   (SNPP)  and  the   Affiliated  Network  for   Social  Accountability-East  AsiaPacific (ANSA-EAP) to distribute some 215,000 food packs to families in need across 42 cities and municipalities in Luzon and Visayas.

SNPP   is   an   independent   organization composed of parent-leaders who are also members   of  the   government's  Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program. It has around 80,000   household-members   across   the country. ANSA-EAP, on the other hand, is an inter-country resource facility for socia laccountability, and is SNPP’s institutional partner for providing leadership and skills-building seminars. SNPP   and   ANSA-EAP’s   established network   enabled   JGF   to  systematically identify affected communities that became direct   beneficiaries   of   food   packs  from Jollibee Group. “In   times   of   crisis,   access   to   food   isalways   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   JGF Executive   Director   Gisela   Tiongson.   “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 themost.”“Dahil matibay ang samahan ng SNPP, mahusay ang naging distribution—organized  at maysocial distancing. Natuto ang parent-leaders sa tamang pagdi-distribute,” said SNPP presidentJaina Catacio.  “Sa mga  beneficiary,  hindi nila akalain na may ipamimigay talaga na  Jollibee chicken   packs.  Naiyak   at   naluha   sila,   hindi   akalain   na  matutugunan   ang   tawag   ng   tiyan, (Because of the strong structure and relationships within SNPP, the organization was able tohelp keep the distribution organized while ensuring social distancing. The parent-leaders even learned about how to properly conduct the distributions. The beneficiaries could hardly believe.
