My Good friend, Chef David Wasson opened the first ever food bank in The Philippines last year. The Tagum City Food Bank is dedicated to feeding the severely malnourished children of Mindanao, and educating mothers on nutrition and maintaining healthy weight in their children. The organization has had many amazing successes, but they still need our help!
I thought it would be helpful to get an exact idea of how little it takes to make a difference, and where exactly your donations would be going. Here's what Chef Wasson had to say:
"5 usd = 8 kilos of rice (we get the governments charity price for rice). Enough to feed a child for almost 3 weeks. 100% of all donations buys rice. It takes 10 to 12 weeks to completely restore a severely mal nourished child (down 40% of their body weight!!!!) to normal weight. So twenty dollars completely restores one child. This is the site where they can donate thru pay pal."
Please join me in helping Chef Wasson in his important work!
