GrabFood, GrabMart to continue operations during this August’s MECQ

Announces free deliveries, too

Grab Philippines has announced that its food and grocery services will still be operational during the newly-brought Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine in Metro Manila.

Delivery charges for the GrabFood service will be free from August 4 to 18. “For our customers and their families who are staying at home, Grabfood will offer free delivery during this period to ensure that they continue to have access to daily meal options for themselves and their loved ones,” a spokesperson from Grab said. As always, free delivery comes with a minimum purchase. This time it’s at a PHP 550 minimum cap, and you need to use the codes UNLIFREEDEL(until August 5) and ZERODELFEE (Aug 6 – 16).

The ride-hailing service will temporarily stop its car operations and will continue to provide livelihood to displaced drivers by diverting its fleet operations to helping frontliners get into their destinations. “Frab is also looking into the prospect of having our driver-partners provide mobility solutions to our hospital partners as dedicated shuttle fleet for their medical frontliners. Likewise, Grab will continue to provide mobility solutions to our corporate and merchant partners so that their staff can continue to provide essential services during this MECQ,” they said

This announcement comes after President Rodrigo Duterte placed the National Capital region, as well as several provinces in Regions 3 and 4-A under the MECQ.
