Community leaders and volunteers respond to hunger among Filipino children in their barangay. They set up a community kitchen to cook daily nutritious lunch meals for over 280 kids.
In the Soledad kitchen, meals are served in hapag areas / common eating areas in more than 5 mini-locations within the community. Children eat together with their friends during lunch. The kitchen is a hub for Bayanihan where volunteers, local government units, partners, and leaders are essential for the program to work.
You can feed one child in Brgy. Talogtog, San Juan, La Union for only Php 20.00 per meal. The community kitchen aims to provide meals for at least 120 days to kids ages 1 – 12 years old.
Hunger, especially among children, is a significant roadblock that the poor have to overcome daily. Through Kusina ng Kalinga (Care Kitchens), we build caring communities for our young. It is where lunchboxes or plates don’t just contain meals, but also carry the commitment to care together until no child is left hungry. This Bayanihan effort is powered by Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK), Gawad Kalinga’s anti-hunger program.
Thank you, RCBC, and to all the stakeholders. Your kindheartedness feeds the 345 kids in San Juan, La Union. The parents and the kitchen volunteers were elated that they were part of this initiative. Being a part of this mission was a valuable opportunity that presented several possibilities to aid the community.

When an act of kindness multiplies, it helps more people. Everyone can help, no matter how small or big. As long as it comes from the heart, we can persuade more people to help. Financial scarcity is not an obstacle to helping those who are in need.
Today, we are highlighting the province known for its beaches and waves. Aside from being a surfing hotspot in Luzon, families in their communities continue to experience hunger.
The effects of the pandemic motivated KnK to set up a mini kitchen in the community to respond to the citizens’ call for help. As of August 10, 2020, KnK Soledad has made 14,145 meals, feeding 345 beneficiaries. Feeding is conducted through our hapag areas in 4 locations within the barangay and 3 others on a Grab & Go basis.
Special thanks to one of our partners, RCBC for swiftly responding to hunger felt by the community in San Juan, La Union.
