Kusina ng Kalinga San Fernando fights kids’ malnutrition

Aug 27, 2017

SAN FERNANDO CITY, LA UNION – 1,005 children from nine community schools in the City of San Fernando, La Union will benefit from Kusina ng Kalinga, a feeding program launched on August 17, 2017 at the Bangbangolan Elementray School.
To ensure the success of the program, the City Government of San Fernando with the Department of Education (DepEd) and Gawad Kalinga (GK) signed a memorandum of agreement during the launch.
Dr. Fatima Boado, DepEd City Schools Division superintendent, said that the program also fosters a culture of caring for these children, as it will involve various stakeholders in the preparation of each day’s nutritious lunch.
Mayor Hermenegildo “Dong” Gualberto expressed optimism about the program because all the sectors, including DepEd, PTA, barangay officials, city departments, and volunteers, were present to make sure that the program will be sustained.
The feeding program started providing meals last August 14, 2017 to students of Baraoas ES, Cadaclan ES, Bangbangolan ES, Pao ES, Puspus ES, Masicong ES, Sacyud ES, Nagyubuyuban ES and Parparya (Nagyubuyuban Upper) ES and will continue until the end of the school year.
Kusina ng Kalinga is a nationwide movement initiated by Gawad Kalinga with the objective of ending hunger through a school-based feeding program. At present, there are kitchens in 13 municipalities around the country. ERWIN BELEO / ABN
