The Straits Times: Gojek to provide food delivery jobs for drivers with Deliveroo, Advo, Ebb & Flow
SINGAPORE (THE BUSINESS TIMES) - Gojek Singapore on Monday (May 18) said it has inked agreements with various organisations including Deliveroo to create additional earning opportunities for its drivers amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Under the partnership with Deliveroo, Gojek drivers will take on food delivery jobs to pick up meals from restaurants and deliver them to customers. These drivers will service districts around Central Singapore, comprising Bukit Merah, Queenstown, Toa Payoh and Geylang. In addition, the ride-hailing firm is collaborating with Singapore-based education financing startup Advo on an initiative to deliver more than 2,000 meals to "vulnerable and financially needy single-parent households in Singapore", it added. Named #FeedaFam, the initiative by Advo is supported by food and beverage (F&B) partner Ebb & Flow, a homegrown technology-driven F&B company. According to Gojek, its drivers will pick up freshly-cooked dinners from Ebb & Flow's cloud kitchen and deliver them to beneficiaries identified through Advo's partnership with charity organisation HCSA Community Services (Dayspring SPIN).
