For its Feed-A-Child project, the GMA Kapuso Foundation (GMAKF) has found a reliable partner, the San Miguel Foods, Inc. (SMFI)

In the partnership, SMFI will provide Magnolia Chicken to GMAKF’s feeding project. The project aims to improve the nutritional status of more than 300 children in three barangays in Presentacion, Camarines Sur.

Presentacion is one of the top ten malnourished municipalities in Camarines Sur.

Not only will GMAKF and SMFI participate in the six-month project. It will also highlight the act of “bayanihan” between teachers and parents in preparing meals for the students in the aforementioned municipality.

Maangas Elementary School, Bagong Sirang Elementary School, and Parubcan Central School will volunteer to make sure the project’s success.

GMAKF EVP and COO Ms. Rikki Escudero-Catibog expressed gratitude to SMFI for trusting GMAKF. “It is an honor for GMAKF to have a partner like San Miguel Foods in our effort to fight malnutrition, particularly in Camarines Sur,” she said.

SMFI’s President Ms. Rita Imelda B. Palabyab, said that this partnership with GMAKF has a multiplier effect.

“As I listen to the mechanics of how they select the community and how they monitor the progress of the children, it’s also very aligned with what we do ourselves. So that multiplier effect is really in place,” she said.
