PMI Manila Team Launches Rolling Community Pantry
Our PMI Gives teams around the world continue to find innovative ways to aid their communities through giving, volunteering, and service. These activities bring to life PMI’s core value to “Create a Better World” and are often in support of PMI’s giving pillars of nature conservation, outdoor connections, and food security.
Our Global Support Center team based in Manila was recently inspired to build a “Rolling Community Pantry” to help address immediate needs in the community. This unique take on a food bank brings the food directly to those who need it most. Using a replenishment van, the team delivered food and goods to pantries and kiosks all over Manila.
The effort coincided with Philippine Labor Day on May 1. We also honored the hard work of our community members by donating repacked goods and pandemic supplies to them directly.
