Chevron (Caltex) and e-hailing service provider Grab have joined forces to contribute food to frontliners in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic and during the current MCO period.
The two organizations plan to donate about 2,800 meals to frontliners, starting 15 May until 11 June. The food packs are prepared by a local restaurant and would be delivered to men and women serving in hospitals, clinics and at checkpoints.
Chevron appointed grab as the preferred partner due to the company's popularity via its app. The grab app has been very well accepted by users in the country. Grab started with e-hailing services before branching out to food & beverage delivery and virtually all types of related delivery services. The company, backed by a strong foundation, has a depth of industry experience in delivery and logistics management.
Under this program, Chevron and grab are working with a local restaurant Alibaba and Nyonya Café to supply the food packs in their bid to support local businesses throughout this challenging period. grab has the task of collecting the food and delivering it to frontliners at various clinics and roadblocks.
Jay Gomez, Country Chairman of Chevron Malaysia Limited, commented, “We recognize the tremendous concerted effort, time and dedication of our health workers and law enforcement personnel. We would like to acknowledge their contribution to society. We hope these donations will show our brave frontliners that we’re standing by them during this challenging time.”
The food delivery program began during the month of Ramadan and is expected to continue until mid June.
