Summary

Hunger and Malnutrition is the hidden virus many of us tend to overlook. 1 in 3 Filipinos is affected and the consequent impact lasts a lifetime. Current approaches to solve this are ad-hoc and very event driven. Through "KuBO" (Kusina ng Bayan sa Oras ng pangangailangan), we will launch a movement that will fight hunger and malnutrition among vulnerable communities in the Philippines. Join our cause!

Challenge

According to UNICEF, 95 children in the Philippines die from malnutrition each day and a third of Filipino children are stunted or short for their age. At this rate we will have many young people and eventually adults who will not be at their productive best. This is a rampant problem especially among vulnerable communities residing in the urban slums of Manila, and a hard reality that is further aggravated by the fact that the Philippines is the third most disaster-prone country in the world.

Solution

The true indication of development lies in locally-led solutions that are sustainable and future-proof. Thus, we will launch "KuBO" which will serve Filipinos in hunger/poverty-stricken areas, starting in Metro Manila that will stretch across the Philippines, with well-balanced and nutritious meals on a regular basis. Not only does it help respond to the country's ongoing issues, but it will also provide an additional lifeline and measure to combat hunger resulting from natural disasters.

Long-Term Impact

We envision successfully launching, sustaining and growing "KuBO" as a NATION-WIDE campaign in battling hunger and providing food and nutrition to millions of Filipinos residing in vulnerable communities. In the long-run, this will be a multi-stakeholder partnership drive to transform the community kitchens into hubs that can deliver key programs, including government initiatives, that are focused on health, hygiene, education, and livelihood.
