A food initiative for all
As a response to the recent coronavirus pandemic, region-wide lockdowns, and an increased need for food and relief in our marginalized communities, we started Walang Iwanan sa One Cainta (We are One Cainta. No one gets left behind).
In partnership with our local government and key stakeholders, we provide food, relief, and vitamins to at least 1000 people everyday.
Beyond food, we likewise work with various organizations and people to support our frontliners and patients with PPEs, isolation tents, insulin, relief, and sanitation tents.
What We Do
We engage with organizations – corporations, NGOs, and foundations that provide us with food and relief to give to our marginalized communities. Distribution of goods are door-to-door.
We partner with restaurants that donate a daily number of packed meals either from their commissary kitchens or daily inventory surplus. Distribution of goods remain door-to-door
We maintain a General Donors Fund where cash donations are stored and used for the purchase of rice, canned goods, and other relief necessities for the communities.
