Manila City Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso teamed up with FoodPanda Philippines to provide free bicycle units and safety gears under the program “pandaBIZikleta.”

Domagoso and FoodPanda Philippines Managing Director Dan Marogy signed a memorandum of agreement on Wednesday, June 9 for the new project to support freelance delivery bikers.

Under the program, about 30 beneficiaries will receive free bicycle units and safety gears donated to the Manila City government from the international relief organization Samaritan's Purse.


The beneficiaries will be go on board as freelance delivery bikers and will also receive P3,000.00 worth of FoodPanda rider kits consisting of uniforms, thermal box, thermal bag, and panda mask, free of charge.

Succeeding beneficiaries of the project will receive discounts for FoodPanda kits and an affordable installment.

Last year, FoodPanda and the local government also entered into a partnership for the pandaTODA project, which helped hundres of displaced tricycle drivers whilst the pandemic.

Marogy said they have partnered with Manila City as they recognize the local government’s efforts to boost the capital’s economic recovery, particularly for programs that would benefit Manileños.

“Manila has always been special to foodpanda. We are a proud partner and we are grateful to Mayor Isko Moreno for working with us once again to contribute to its economic recovery programs for the benefit of Manilenos,” Marogy said.

Domagoso also said that drivers are part of the A4 priority group, and they are encouraged to get vaccinated.

"Sabihin niyo sa mga driver A4 sila ha. Magpabakuna na sila," Domagoso said.

The pandaBIZikleta partnership of FoodPanda and Manila City will be administered by the Manila Public Employment Service Office (PESO), Manila’s arm for providing job opportunities to Manilans.

PESO-Manila Director Fernan Bermejo thanked FoodPanda Philippines for their continued support to the City and Manilans for giving job opportunities amidst the pandemic.

"Lubos po ang pagpapasalamat namin sa pamunuan ng FoodPanda Philippines sa patuloy na pakikipag-tulungan sa Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Maynila sa adhikain nitong magbigay oportunidad sa ating mga Manileño na naghahanap ng trabaho. Naging matagumpay ang PandaTODA sa Lungsod ng Maynila kaya kami po sa PESO-Manila ay naniniwala na itong PandaBIZikleta ay magiging matagumpay din," Bermejo said.

PESO-Manila will soon announce the requirements and other details regarding the application as beneficiary for the program.
