Summary

"Care Kitchen" is GK's flagship program to end hunger and malnutrition for children across Philippines. It is an in-school feeding program that aims to provide nutritious lunch meals over the course of one school year, improve school attendance rates and enhance children's learning capacities, and build a community that cares for the young by involving parents, teachers, and volunteers in the daily operations. Hunger ends where caring begins. Visit http://gk1world.com/kusinangkalinga for more.

Challenge

A recent study has found that a lot of Filipino families are still hungry, including 15 million children. Despite the abundance in food, they would have to dig through garbage bins of restaurants or sleep off their hunger just to survive the day. This is especially true in areas affected by disasters (i.e Typhoon Haiyan), where practically everything is wiped out. A year after Haiyan, many of our children are still hungry - for food, for caring, and for a fair chance to build their dreams again.

Solution

For 1 year, children from different public schools will be provided with free lunch packs containing nutritious meals that are freshly prepared in the "Care Kitchen" everyday by GK volunteers, teachers, and their parents. Aside from providing the children with free lunch, the parents are also encouraged to take part in our values formation programs to be able to empower them in helping their families' health improve even in their own little ways at home.

Long-Term Impact

The "Care Kitchen" program does not only address hunger and malnutrition but it also greatly increases the children's attendance in school, boosts the local agricultural economy, and strengthens the values within their families. Having been launched just last August 2014, this program aims to reach out to 50,000 children within a year's time.
