“No Kid Should Go Hungry,” Says This Movement

The Pilipinas Kontra Gutom movement focuses on streamlining food production and distribution to make sure that no kid ever goes hungry.

It’s heartbreaking to see kids go hungry. A lot of times, hunger is what deprives kids of doing other things. When kids don’t have baon, they’d rather not go to school. With no food in their stomachs, kids also find it hard to focus on their classes. Task Force Zero Hunger, with the help of the public sector and 80 partner members from private corporations and non-government organizations, begins the Pilipinas Kontra Gutom movement to lower the incidence of hunger in the country.

How will they stop kids from going hungry?

Food is a resource that needs management. While Pilipinas Kontra Gutom focuses on making sure that food is available and accessible, they grant extra incentives to farmers. Once the farmers have produced enough food, next will be making sure everyone gets the right amount of food. Food adequacy followed by assistance and consistency, the movement hopes to build a completely working and efficient food bank to make sure no kid ever goes hungry again.

Lahat kasali, lahat kasalo”

Reaching over 450,000 hungry Filipinos, the Pilipinas Kontra Gutom movement works to make sure that no parent has to watch their kids go hungry. For any parent, that’s the worst nightmare they could have. As Pilipinas Kontra Gutom moves forward in helping other families find food, we can help too through their website. There are a lot of stores and companies participating so we can help them there.
