July 10 marks the 11th Anniversary of Zomato globally. And how would a food tech company celebrate its birthday? In a very special way, the Zomato team celebrated by conducting a food drive worldwide. In line with its mission of providing better food for more people, hundreds of Zomato employees and hunger heroes distributed meals to the underserved across 11 countries: India, Philippines, UAE, Lebanon, Portugal, Australia, Indonesia, New Zealand, Qatar, USA, and Turkey.
On the day of Zomato’s Birthday, July 10, Zomato Philippines gathered almost 2000 meals that were distributed to selected homeless, underprivileged, and less fortunate areas in Metro Manila. With the help of esteemed brands such as Jollibee, J.CO Donuts & Coffee, Chowking, BonChon Chicken, Long Time Ago, Kashmir, U! Happy, Sangkap, Yoshinoya, La Mère Poulard, ALTA by Relik, Tropical Hut, Rossini Ristorante Italiano, Kowloon House – Bangkal Makati, Recovery Food, Three Guys And A Grill, Uncle Moe’s Shawarma Hub, Buddy’s, Cabalen, Easy, Tiger, Pep Squad Events, AXA Philippines, Tang, and Hearty Bread, Zomato was able to distribute around 2,000 meals in less fortunate communities in Metro Manila. That’s 2000 smiles – a true celebration for Zomato’s Birthday in the Philippines!
The birthday bash was then followed by a Zomato Gold Experience last July 20, with the kids of Mertixell Children’s Foundation. It was themed sibling-for-a-day, where Zomato Gold Members willingly volunteered to be an ate or a kuya for a day. The afternoon was spent with giggles and cheers from the kids, as there was a lot of dancing, singing, fun, and games. An amazing Zomato Gold experience.
In the spirit of Zomato’s mission, better food for more people, the only way they ought to celebrate was to give back. Congratulations and Happy Birthday, Zomato!
