PASAY CITY — Chooks-to-Go operator Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) gave hot meals to passengers — many of them overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) — stranded outside Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Thursday.

Staff distributed food packs and drinks to approximately 200 passengers whose flights back home had been canceled due to both the on-going coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the tropical depression Butchoy.

Once BAVI president Ronald Mascariñas heard that the majority of the stranded came from Mindanao, he immediately sent over packs of ready-to-eat meals to all of them.

“Most of them are from my birth place in Mindanao, and as OFWs, they are our modern-day heroes sacrificing to work in foreign lands, so we can enjoy prosperity in our country,” said BAVI president Ronald Mascariñas.

“It is our utmost responsibility as a Filipino-owned company to help out our modern day heroes in whatever way we can especially a day before the country will celebrate our 122nd Independence Day. Just like our national heroes before, they too are sacrificing a lot for our country.”

Since the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic hit the country, BAVI has been supporting frontliners and vulnerable communities severely affected by the lockdowns.

BAVI has donated chicken and poultry products fit for 386,300 meals.

BAVI is the largest rotisserie chicken company and the only poultry integrator in the Philippines that does not put any antibiotics in its chickens (together with sister company Bounty Fresh Foods, Inc.). It is also the company behind Uling Roasters and Adobo Connection.
