With its Feeding Program now on its third year, the Century Pacific Group through the RSPo Foundation is doing its share in reducing the specter of hunger and malnutrition among underprivileged children in support of its advocacy to nourish kids in poverty – stricken localities.
Three Million Meals
The RSPo Foundation served its 3-millionth meal at Consuelo Chito Madrigal Foundation in Payatas, Quezon City on December 8, 2012, with no less than Chairman and Founder Ricardo S. Po Sr. at the forefront of the activity, together with his family, CPG employee-volunteers, and scholars.
The activity set direction for the Foundation to focus its efforts in supporting school feeding programs which not only fill stomachs but also encourage children to attend their classes regularly and improve their academic performance.
Concelebrating with the CPG employees and their children mirrors the success of the Foundation’s education program in extending scholarship to the tenured CPG employee whose child belongs to the top 10% of their class.
indeed, nutrition and education go hand in hand in empowering children to achieve their fullest potential, which can ultimately impact the future of one’s country in a profound way.
