WVCST Joins Jollibee in Special Feeding Program

To address hunger and malnutrition among school children from typhoon devastated areas in the 5th District and in Municipalities of Capiz, Western Visayas College of Science and Technology together with the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) embarked on a Special Feeding Program. The Special School Feeding Program (SSFP), is inspired by the Foundation’s Busog Lusog Talino (BLT) Feeding Program but with some modifications to cater to the scope and magnitude of the disaster’s impact.

The program which also aims to encourage children to go back to school, is serving lunch 3 times a week- Monday, Wednesday and Friday for a period of 30 days starting January 20 to March 28, 2014 to pupils from all grade levels.

WVCST is handling 7 municipalities in the Province of Iloilo and Capiz with a total of 78 public elementary schools and 27,005 beneficiaries.

The JGF is providing the feeding budget and in-kind support to the target schools like rice, feeding and cooking utensils. Meanwhile, the College will provide the monitoring support.

With regard to this, orientations were conducted to partners LGUs, DepEd Supervisors, School Principals, teacher coordinators, Baranggay and PTA Officials to assure the effective and efficient implementation of the program. Engr. Cora Corbal, Director of the Extension Services Division of WVCST and her staff, spearheaded the said orientations in Lemery, San Rafael, San Dionisio, Estancia, Concepcion, Ajuy and Dumarao, Capiz.
