Quezon City, in collaboration with the Scholars of Sustenance (SOS) Philippines and Allianz PNB Life Insurance, Inc., orchestrated a heartwarming Food Rescue Kitchen activity at the Molave Youth Home. The event, which took place on Tuesday, witnessed the preparation of a staggering 1,200 meals for the children currently residing at the Molave Youth Home.

The generosity extended beyond the young residents, as the visiting parents were also provided with food parcels to take home to their families, emphasizing the inclusive spirit of the event.

The occasion served as a post-celebration of World Food Day, commemorated on Monday, October 16. Complementing the culinary outreach, Allianz PNB Life Insurance, Inc. conducted a financial literacy seminar for the parents, while their volunteers engaged with the children in crafting vibrant artworks using recyclable PET bottles, fostering an atmosphere of creativity and camaraderie.


SOS PH, a non-profit food rescue organization, has taken it upon themselves to collaborate with local authorities to curtail food waste by rescuing surplus food that businesses and establishments are on the brink of discarding. This rescued food is then redistributed to communities and families in need, exemplifying a commendable commitment to sustainable and responsible resource management.

Quezon City stands as the first local government unit to partner with SOS, spearheading the initiative to salvage surplus food from various establishments, ensuring it reaches communities to alleviate hunger.

Leading the charge in this impactful undertaking was QC Sustainable Development Projects Officer and QC Food Security Task Force co-chairman, Emmanuel Hugh Velasco II. The collaborative food rescue kitchen initiative also aligns with the city's broader objectives of promoting a circular economy and advancing GrowQC food security.
