05 Dec PDP-Laban launched ‘Duterte’s Kitchen,’ Feeding Program for Street Children in Cubao
In support to President Rodrigo Duterte’s advocacy to feed the poor, the Partido Demokratikong Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) has launched a national feeding program for the poor.
According to a report from Sun.Star, the Duterte’s Kitchen is now open to feed hungry street children in Cubao, Quezon City for free.
Around 50 to 70 street children are free to eat in Duterte’s Kitchen daily from breakfast, lunch until dinner. The establishment is located near MRT Cubao between Farmers Plaza and Social Security System Building.
The free food center is an idea of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez, PDP-Laban officials said.
Duterte’s Kitchen serves lugaw and champorado for breakfast, rice with vegetables, fish, chicken or pork adobo during lunch and for dinner, it only depends on the food provided by the contributors.
Glen Badon, the PDP-Laban national executive director said the center is staffed by dedicated volunteers who believes in the advocacy of extending help to the needy people and bringing hope and inspiration to them.
He said that previously, they only offer food to the street children but now, even hungry adults are also being accommodated. Whenever they receive vegetables, chicken or pork meat, then they could serve it to the street children, he added.
Duterte’s Kitchen will soon be launched in other areas of the country to help more needy Filipinos, PDP-Laban said, adding that the Cubao program is just the start.
