Single mom is foodpanda’s solo walker in Dagupan

A 43-year old Ka-Panda partner walker and single mother, Sheila Macabenta has been delivering food on foot for almost a year now to foodpanda customers in Dagupan City.

It’s been said that anything that a man can do, a woman can do as well. That certainly holds true for the fast-growing quick-commerce industry, where women delivery workers make up a significant chunk of the workforce, thanks to food delivery apps like foodpanda. One of the industry’s leading names and known for their eye-catching brand, foodpanda is also known for giving opportunities to Filipinos regardless of gender to become “Ka Panda” delivery partners.

While we are more familiar with the sight of them on a motorcycle or a bicycle, you might be surprised that others also deliver food on foot– and in foodpanda’s case, these workers are affectionately called ‘Ka-Panda walkers’. For the leading quick-commerce digital platform, having walkers opens up opportunities for those who are non-drivers or do not own a vehicle to still make a living – like 43-year-old Sheila Macabenta, who holds the distinction of being foodpanda’s lone walker in the Dagupan area.

To Mom, With Love from The Peninsula Manila!

Take Mom to The Peninsula Manila for some extra nurturing in moms-only lounges, Sunday Brunch, or overnight stays this Mother’s Day Weekend.

In normal, pre-pandemic times, mothers have always had to perform several jobs – Chief Parenting Officer, Lead Laundry Operator, Executive Chef, Head of Entertainment & Toys… to name a few. Over the past two years, however, those jobs have multiplied as working from home, home schooling, and reduction of after school activities put more family time/responsibility on her. But did she crack? NO. Did she buckle under pressure? NO. She persevered as the enforcer of the tightest family bonds.

But with the world gradually reopening, it’s about time to treat mom to some much deserved “Me Time.” In fact, a survey of mothers revealed that a majority of respondents wished for just that. So, say goodbye to the typical bouquet of flowers and celebrating at home and say hello to these offers from The Peninsula Manila that come with some extra nurturing in moms-only lounges, dining experiences, or overnights or longer stays this Mother’s Day Weekend.
