In January, baking enthusiasts - both beginners and experts - gathered to create delicious pastries to be sold at the MS Banchetto.
21 MicroMissions volunteers went to The Cookery Place in BGC to become chefs du jour to bake the following:
Although the group's main purpose was to raise funds, bonding with fellow volunteers, having fun, and learning something new were also on the agenda. Volunteers from six MS Manila sites were chosen to participate with the commitment to sell the baked goodies in their respective sites.
The money that was raised was used to buy food for the children of Sitio Dumpsite in Barangay San Luis, Antipolo City. This activity is in accordance with our purpose to help fight malnutrition and to stand for the campaign #HANGRYaboutHUNGER by Nestle's United Healthier for Kids.
On January 31, MicroMissions sold baked goods at the MS Banchetto. A total of Php 18,725 was raised and donated to our partner foundation, Reach Out Feed Philippines who bought the ingredients for the lunch meal of kids in Sitio Dumpsite. The amount was good for a week of eating three meals a day for 100 kids.
On February 10, MS employee volunteers grouped to prepare, cook, and pack meals for the children and attendees of the feeding program. A sumptuous meal inclusive of chicken teriyaki, buttered vegetables, rice, and fresh fruit salad was given to hapless kids in order to nourish their bodies. More than 100 kids were given meals and the fresh fruit salad was a hit!
After lunch, Ray Alferez from EV 1880 entertained the kids with a magic show they will not forget. It was a good feeling sharing that amazing moment with the kids and the kids at heart.
Another mission accomplished! On to the next one.
