Aptly launched this holiday season 2023, Globe in cooperation with the online community Fine Dining Club Philippines introduced “Gourmet Giving Series: A Fine Dining Thanksgiving Experience for the Hapag Movement.” Taking part in this laudable endeavor are select luxury restaurants who have agreed to pledge a portion of their earnings to support Globe’s feeding and livelihood training initiatives for Filipino families who experience involuntary hunger.
The chefs behind the fine dining establishments come together in a spirit of Thanksgiving and encourage their patrons to do their share as well. Each plate takes the diner into a culinary journey while the host restaurant does its share in giving back to the community.
Among the participating A-list Filipino establishments are: Alegria Manila, The Black Pig, Chef Jessie Rockwell Club, Ember, Flame by Discovery Primea, Gallery by Chele, Helm, La Cabrera, The Test Kitchen, Tiago’s Restaurant, Txoko Asador, and Your Local.
Globe Chief Sustainability and Communications Officer Yoly Crisanto says, “Globe is not only a service provider, we are catalysts of change, forging pathways that seamlessly link our customers to opportunities where they can make difference and leave an impact.” On the other hand, RG Orense Digital and Social Strategy Head explained, “We are using the power of social media to increase awareness and support to meaningful projects such as these. Engaging with Facebook’s Fine Dining Club Philippines (which boasts of 23,300 culinary enthusiasts) is a move to leverage that particular platform’s passion for food and use it to make a difference.
Globe Platinum customers are in for a treat with priority booking access through their dedicated lifestyle concierge exclusively for Globe Platinum and Fine Dining Club Philippines members from October 14-October 28. Special treats also await Globe broadband customers who avail of the Hapag Movement tasting menus from November 20-30.
The event builds on Globe’s Hapag Movement series which bridged World Hunger day to World Food Day. Since its launch in August of last year, the Hapag Movement has raised close to P22 million, impacting close to 70,000 Filipinos through supplemental feeding and livelihood training.
