Busog, Lusog, Talino School Feeding Program
Hunger and malnutrition often lead to dropouts among public school pupils. It may take a village to raise a child, but what will it take to nourish them?
Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) addresses this through the Busog, Lusog, Talino (BLT) School Feeding Program. Established in 2007, it provided daily lunch to children across the country to help them stay in school.
To support the Department of Education’s School-Based Feeding Program, JGF started to build BLT School Feeding Kitchens in 2016, which centralize the preparation of meals that are distributed to surrounding schools, feeding hundreds of pupils per kitchen with less time and effort.
Nourishing pupils is best accomplished when different stakeholders work together to serve the common goal of seeing students well-fed, healthy, and inspired to learn.
