Facedrive Inc. (“Facedrive”) (TSXV: FD), the first Canadian peer-to-peer, eco-friendly and socially responsible ride-sharing network, is pleased to announce the launch of Facedrive Foods, an initiative to connect residents and local restaurant businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While social distancing has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of this outbreak, we want to ensure that people in our community at least have access to good, healthy food that can be safely delivered right to their doorstep”
Facedrive Foods will first launch pilot programs in the Greater Toronto Area, and London, Ontario, in the coming weeks, with subsequent expansion into other regions in which Facedrive is operational in the future.
Facedrive pursues a “people and planet first” business model, and Facedrive Foods adheres to these principles by offering eco-friendly deliveries, with each delivery contributing a portion of the fee towards local tree-planting initiatives to help reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere. Facedrive partners with municipal authorities and local ‘green’ organizations to ensure compliance with the region’s forestation plans, promote adoption of best practices of tree-planting, and to achieve the best possible survival rates for each tree planting campaign.
Menu options available for delivery through the Facedrive Foods platform will generally be comprised of healthy, nutritious and sustainably sourced meal options offered by like-minded restaurant businesses with consumers’ wellness in mind. With a large portion of Facedrive’s user base consisting of high school, college and university students, Facedrive believes it has a responsibility to adopt a scrupulous approach towards selecting vendors and menu options.
At this time of global pandemic and containment efforts, it is more important than ever to ensure community well-being. Facedrive ensures the highest level of safety for its customers, with drivers undergoing comprehensive training in COVID-19 safety protocols. In addition, all deliveries are contactless by default, as a protection measure for Facedrive’s customers and drivers.
“As part of Facedrive’s ongoing commitment to help the environment and its people, we are excited to announce the launch of Facedrive Foods,” said Chief Operations Officer, Suman Pushparajah. “During these unprecedented times, we want to support our local businesses and, as such, we will be waiving all fees for restaurants during our initial pilot program”.
“While social distancing has proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of this outbreak, we want to ensure that people in our community at least have access to good, healthy food that can be safely delivered right to their doorstep,” added Pushparajah.
