Kababayan Food Packs

We are doing what we can to support our community in Marikina. We launched Kababayan Food Pack Relief Project for the benefit of Brgy. Calumpang  Marikina City residents who are currently unable to work and earn their livelihood during the Enhance Community Quarantine.

Our beneficiaries include factory workers, informal workers such as jeepney & tricycle drivers and anyone who’s work has been affected by the Enhanced Community Quarantine.

Food Packs are distributed weekly until the Quarantine is lifted.

March 24, 2020 Update

Our first relief project just finished. We were able to provide  20 families with Food Packs.  Our original plan was to provide some vegetable for a heathy Food Pack but we had some difficulty sourcing low priced vegetable to fit our budget since the prices in the markets has already increased significantly.

This week’s Food Pack contented

  • 5 kilos of rice
  • 1 kilo hotdog
  • 1 loaf of bread
  • 15 pcs egg
  • 1 pack bihon

Total cost of the Food Pack for this week is P500. We are hoping to provide a more healthier Food Pack next week and reach more families.

Personal Shopping Service Launch

As an e-commerce brand it’s always a challenge to address our customers need to see our products up close and personal. This is why in 2015 we stated with our Weekend Pop-ups across the Metro. In the late 2019 we ventured in Pop-up Stores lasting from one to six months. And this 2020 we are launching another option for our clients to appreciate and see our products. With this we are very happy to announce the launching of Personal Shopping Service (PSS).

PSS is a service we provide for customers within Greater Metro Manila where in we bring our products to their specified location at the pre-arrange schedule. PSS is indented for customers who has no time to visit our Pop-ups or if you just don’t want to go to the mall and brace the Metro traffic. PSS can also be scheduled as a gift for your special someone. Pre-payment can be arranged to make it a real treat, a perfect Valentine Gift. Another purpose can be for a group of friends just enjoying some BFF shopping at home. Possibilities are endless.

For information of our Personal Shopping Service please visit www.Ni-QUA.com/PSS and to book your schedule please click here

Enjoy shopping.
