Enjoy fine dining at the Metro’s best restaurants while helping Filipinos in need

With almost 15 million Filipinos food insecure, Globe Platinum is on a mission of goodness: to allow their customers to experience fine dining at the best restaurants in the Metro while helping feed the most vulnerable Filipinos.

Fine dining restaurants, all recognized by Fine Dining Club Philippines are joining forces to support the first ever Gourmet Giving Series. With the Club’s stellar endorsements, Globe Platinum customers are guaranteed to enjoy exclusive tasting menus with wine pairing at the most sought-after restaurants in the Metro prepared by only the most talented of chefs.

A portion of the proceeds from the Gourmet Giving Series goes to The Hapag Movement, Globe’s initiative to support their philanthropic effort. By tapping their partners’ help and using their digital platforms for this Movement, Globe Platinum reaches out to Filipinos who need help the most.

To date, together with their mobilization partners, Globe has raised PhP21.5 million in donations, allowing them to assist over 25,000 Filipino families (over 69,675 individuals) spread over 19 areas in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

This latest venture—the Gourmet Giving Series—is sure to gather more support to help even more Filipinos from November 20 to 26, and is a great way to kick off the holiday season.

Join the cause and pick out the place you want to dine in. Check the schedule below and get your calendar ready.
