RED CROSS HOT MEALS ON WHEELS FOOD TRUCK FEEDS 150 IN MALABON

A team of volunteers from the Philippine Red Cross(PRC) Malabon Chapter drove a Hot Meals on Wheels Food Truck to N. Vicencio St. Barangay Niugan, Malabon City to provide children, and the elderly with warm nutritious meals last February 3, 2022. 

In a report by the United Nations, 59 million Filipinos experienced food insecurity even before the pandemic. Over the past two years, the pandemic exacerbated the hunger crisis as the virus has greatly affected the agriculture sector. 

” With challenges to malnutrition, hunger, and food insecurity experienced by children and the elderly due to the pandemic, it is important that we continue to boost our efforts to address all the health and nutrition needs of the people,” said PRC Chairman and CEO Senator Dick Gordon in a statement.

By the end of the feeding activity, the Chapter has provided meals containing chicken, egg, and rice to 150 beneficiaries.   

The PRC has 29 Hot meals on Wheels food trucks equipped with kitchens that can prepare 100 meals per hour or 800 meals on an 8-hour operation. As of February 3, 2022, the humanitarian organization has served meals for 114, 463 individuals since the beginning of the pandemic.
