IN celebration of International Women’s Day this March, snack brand Tiger Crackers has strengthened its commitment to support communities in danger of facing hunger.
Together with long-time food bank partner Rise Against Hunger Philippines, the company has donated 6,000 packs of its products to the Pasig City Local Council of Women (PC-LCW). This support aims to extend much-needed food to women and their families as the Philippines continues to be under lockdown and dealing with the challenges of the pandemic.

Tiger Crackers is the newest cracker brand in the Philippines, launched in 2020. It is made by Mondelez Philippines, a snacks company with 58 years of existence in the country. Mondelez Philippines aims to empower people to snack right, with the right snack for the right moment and made the right way.
Tiger Crackers is the right and delicious snack, that can be enjoyed any moment with only 120 calories per pack, and made with right way through a unique baking technology that makes it crispier and more enjoyable. Launched in the middle of the pandemic, the brand has continuously worked to support communities who are struggling, first by providing snacks to transport workers during the stricter lockdown last year.
Today, Tiger Crackers aims to support the backbone of homes, those who are working doubly hard these days to ensure their families remain healthy and safe: Women and mothers. Rise Against Hunger (RAH) Philippines is a member of Rise Against Hunger, an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizing the necessary resources to end hunger by 2030.
To support Rise Against Hunger Philippines’ newly formed partnership with the PC-LCW, Tiger Crackers shared cases of its products for the benefit of the more than 90 member groups of the council.
During the signing of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the PC-LCW, Pasig City Councilor Corazon Raymundo, PhD, Chairperson of the City’s Gender and Development Committee shared the amazing work that the council does to support women and provide them resources, thereby supporting their families and communities in the process.
During this time of the pandemic, Councilor Raymundo and the PC-LCW go to barangays most in need of food relief to help ensure everyone in their community is reached and provided for. Tiger Crackers will continue to provide support to RAH and PC-LCW to support more families.
Present during the MOA signing was Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto, who thanked the PC-LCW, Rise Against Hunger Philippines, and Tiger Crackers for their valuable support.
