"Baon" is a Filipino word for packed meals prepared by parents for their kids going to school. Sadly, 1 out of 3 kids in the Philippines don't get the food they need every day. Since learning depends on good nutrition, these kids may never reach the same potential for learning as well-nourished kids. #ProjectBaon will ensure the daily provision of a healthy "baon".
We work with schools and poor communities in the Philippines. The children we serve belongs to families with an income of less than P200 or $4/day. We screen and identify malnourished children and provide supplementary school meals - a packed lunch with fortified rice, meat, vegetables and fruits, designed especially to meet their nutritional needs.
Reach out Feed Philippines started in 2013 and since then we have:
Reach Out and Feed Philippines Inc. is envisioned to be a part of the solution to the national crisis of malnutrition in the Philippines. Our work focuses in organizing, feeding, and nourishment programs in public schools and the poorest of poor communities in the country.

Outreach Feeding Program
The outreach program runs once a week and is aimed at providing supplementary meals to children with the following conditions:
•Survivors of natural or man-made disasters and calamities
•Children living in the streets or in a poor community
•Abandoned, neglected, orphaned or abused children living in the care of an orphanage or temporary care.
Summer Meals for Kids
The two-month school break in the Philippines is a crucial time to sustain the feeding activities for the beneficiaries because these are the days where government funded school-based feeding program also stops.
During summer, kids belonging to poor families are at risk of child-labor, with their parents counting on them to
help in earning money. The "Summer Meals for Kids" program aims to sustain the provision of daily, hot, and nutritious meals to all beneficiaries, and provide them with a daily venue to be just "kids" - be nourished, play, socialize, interact and learn from volunteer teachers.
