The Inquirer Foundation has announced its partnership with Fighting Hunger of the Ateneo Center for Educational Development (Aced) to support their ongoing efforts to address the effects of food insecurity in the country.
The program aims to distribute weekly food parcels consisting primarily of vegetables and nutritious foods to help relieve hunger, prevent malnutrition, and aid children’s brain development.
In the third week of September, the Inquirer Foundation through Aced was able to start providing food packages for 70 students from the Old Balara Elementary School (Obes) and their families through the project. The support runs until July 2022.
“The Ateneo Center for Educational Development is part of the Inquirer Foundation Corp. deeply grateful for the opportunity to work together for the benefit of the school children at Old Balara Elementary School. Education is the key to a better future, but unfortunately it is not an easy task for children in very difficult circumstances to focus on teaching, ”said Carmela Oracion, General Manager of Aced.
“Nutrition is critical to brain well-being and development, and the Inquirer Foundation Corp.’s weekly food packages for the children. are of great help. With this gift we hope that the children from Obes can learn well now, complete their studies in due course and have a bright future, ”said Oracion.
Aced started in June 2021 and is working with various partner organizations and individuals on its goal of bringing food packages to 10,000 children and their families. At P90, anyone can help a child and their family for a week.
