Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte signed on Wednesday, Oct. 27, an agreement with an online food delivery service company that will give jobs to at least 200 displaced workers.

The agreement will launch the “pandaBIZikleta” project of the foodpanda Philippines to help the beneficiaries of Quezon City’s bicycle distribution program.

“We continue to innovate and look for solutions to ease the suffering of hardworking employees who, through no fault of their own, have lost their jobs due to this pandemic,” Belmonte said.

Through the project, 200 QC residents who received their free bicycles will have an opportunity to work as freelance delivery riders. They will serve as independent contractors for at least three months.

The beneficiaries should be 18 years old and above and have NBI or police clearance.

The mayor said that the project will not only help the displaced workers but will also protect the environment.
