In relation to this, AKO Bicol Party-list Rep. Alfredo Garbin recently filed House Bill 6958, or the Food and Grocery Delivery Services Act, which penalizes those who cancel confirmed orders, burdening most delivery riders and service providers due to frequent abuses especially amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Violators will get the penalty of at least six years of jail time and a Php 100,000 fine as well as reimburse the food and delivery service providers for the value of the items advanced by the rider. They should also pay the provider an amount of money double the fee charged for the canceled transaction.

Meanwhile, a Facebook group in Cagayan de Oro is helping food delivery riders with cancelled orders.
