Foodpanda Homechefs took the initiative to recognise and celebrate their incredible homechefs, as well as their ongoing efforts to change Pakistan’s food delivery landscape by providing healthy and nutritious meals. Foodpanda worked with the Chef’s Association of Pakistan (CAP), COTHM, and Culinary and Hotel Institute of Pakistan (CHIP) to recognise their Homechefs at their respective events, in addition to commemorating the event at the office. Since its inception in 2004 by the late Chef Dr. Bill Gallagher, International Chefs Day has been observed on October 20th all around the world.
The goal of this day is to educate people all around the world about the necessity of eating nutritious foods, to promote chefs’ careers, and to help local communities improve their mindsets.

Foodpanda is providing sole livelihood earning or additional income-earning opportunity to literally tens of thousands of people across the country. To alleviate the adverse economic fallout of the Covid-19 crisis, foodpanda brought a dynamic social empowerment initiative that the country was in a dire need of. Their vertical, HomeChefs, is the initiative that has brought financial empowerment to thousands of home-based cooks in all parts of the country. Also, globally this vertical was unheard off and it has been launched in Pakistan for the first time by foodpanda. Indeed all these home based chefs need to be celebrated and recognised for their efforts, not just on one day but throughout the year. What we can do is support these home based businesses by ordering food from them more often and talk about their quality.
