Feeding and Nutrition Projects in 2016

Feed the Hungry, Inc.’s (FtH) Feeding and Nutrition Program is designed to provide supplemental food to malnourished children aged 6 and below, as this is the critical brain development age for children. The Program involves providing one complete nutritious meal five days a week for a period of 6 months. Children are categorized from first to third degree of malnutrition by FtH program partners in accordance with DSWD (Department of Social Welfare and Development) standards. Children are monitored and evaluated every month of their progress in weight, height and overall health condition until the end of the 6-month program. A final report is then recorded and submitted to FtH.

The Program also includes training for mothers on proper nutrition, care for their children, and family planning. The mothers are tasked to do the cooking and marketing as part of their participation in the Program.

It is beyond words to describe the joy in every child’s eyes and the laughter when feeding time comes, that for once in their food-deprived existence they can look forward to a real full meal every day during the weekdays. We are blessed to have the opportunity to reach out to these children.
