Sardines company joins World Pandesal Day to feed 70,000 free pandesal to QC residents
Mega Global Corporation, a distributor of canned goods, is giving its full support to Kamuning Bakery Cafe (KBC) in celebrating “World Pandesal Day” for the third year in a row. The company is well-known for its flagship brand, Mega Sardines–the Number 1 Sardines Brand in the Philippines–and other high-quality and value-for-money products namely Mega Creations Sardines, Mega Tuna, Mega Prime Quality, and Mega Prime Choices. In line with its corporate mission to improve people’s lives and help in nation-building, Mega Global aims to boost its corporate social responsibility projects by partnering with community-based initiatives such as the “World Pandesal Day.”
The event was founded by entrepreneur, writer, and owner of Kamuning Bakery Cafe, Wilson Lee Flores, and was inspired by the Biblical story of Jesus Christ feeding a multitude with five loaves of bread and two fishes. The charitable initiative aims to alleviate hunger and poverty in the community by feeding thousands of people with pandesal–the humble Filipino breakfast staple that is consumed almost every day and has been around since the 16th century.
Kamuning Bakery is a Quezon City landmark built in 1939. Despite a destructive fire in 2018, it continues its efforts to help the community through various philantrophic projects such as donating public school buildings to the Sta. Rosa Elementary School in Eastern Samar and the Villa Bacolor Elementary School in Tarlac City. KBC also makes regular donations to various orphanages and marginalized groups.
The World Pandesal Day, takes place on October 16, 2019, 8:00AM, at the Kamuning Bakery Cafe at #43 Judge Jimenez corner K-1st St., Brgy. Kamuning, Quezon City. The event highlights the giving away of 70,000 free pandesal and other food gifts to the community, which will be participated by volunteer employees from Mega Global.
Aside from this, Mega Global will also be participating in the medical, dental, and optical mission of Kamuning Bakery on October 27 from 8:00AM-12:00NN. Through its support of these charitable events and amplified corporate social responsibility efforts, Mega Global manifests its thrust as company to create an impact and make a difference in the nation.
