Childhood hunger is a big problem with a simple solution, and we can all take part in solving it!
In #PROJECTBAON, the beneficiaries will be provided with their daily “BAON”- A packed lunch or snack consisting of a balance & nutritious meal with fortified rice, meat, fruits, vegetables, supplements and drinks!
Our vision is to feed and nourish kids belonging to poor communities, initially in these locations :
The long term impact? -Well Nourished Kids Do Better in School! The extra demands on school-age children (to perform chores, for example, or walk long distances to school) create a need for energy that is much greater than that of younger children. Children who lack certain nutrients in their diet, or who suffer from protein-energy malnutrition, hunger, parasitic infections or other diseases, do not have the same potential for learning as healthy and well-nourished children.**
With the intervention of #PROJECTBAON, together we can break the cycle of malnutrition in the lives of these children. The Feed Philippines team will ensure the daily and consistent provision of healthy “baon”, that these kids can bring and enjoy at school.
While a few argue that feeding programs are a ‘band-aid solution’ or are taking over the responsibilities of parents, feeding programs are an important part of the solution for hungry kids today. Blaming people doesn’t feed kids, and there is a generation of children whose hungry stomachs can’t wait for legislation and larger initiatives to fill their tummies. Without our help, their development will be stunted. Moreover, society as a whole will suffer from their lack of ability to participate fully in their communities." - Childrens Charity Network, Australia
