Pledging quality food for the country’s frontline heroes, Mimi & Bros reopened its kitchen in April for its “Road to 10,000 Strong” food drive where it encouraged people to donate a minimum of P100 per meal to feed 10,000 healthcare workers in Metro Manila who are leading the battle against Covid-19.
Known as a restaurant and watering hole for young professionals and urbanites in Bonifacio Global City, Mimi & Bros shifted its focus at the height of the community quarantine to serving medical frontliners.
Partnering with Frontline Feeders PH, the team mobilized food distribution to various hospitals in the metro and other neighboring cities.
“The sacrifices of our frontliners are immeasurable. And as chefs and restaurateurs, the least we can do is to share our resources and skills in the kitchen to nourish their tired bodies. This is to show them how grateful we are for their work to save lives,” said Chef Edward Bugia, F&B division head of MFT Group of Companies, which owns Mimi & Bros.
On July 7, the restaurant achieved its mission and finished at the count of 10,315 frontliners. They served hospitals including Asian Hospital and Medical Center, Cardinal Santos Hospital, Las Piñas General Hospital, Makati Medical Center, Medical Center Taguig, Philippine General Hospital, San Juan de Dios Hospital, St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, Sta Ana Hospital, UERM Memorial Hospital, Veterans Memorial Medical Center, and Victoriano Luna Hospital.
