food news: LUGAW ALL YOU CAN!

Last Sunday, March 27, 2011, the Holy Family Parish Church in Parang, Marikina, Philippines have launched their fund-raising project called “Lugaw All You Can”. The strategy of the project has its similarity in an “Eat All You Can” restaurant. Bottomless “lugaw” per se’, as long as your stomach can handle it. “Lugaw” is the same as “Goto” and a Filipino term for “Arroz Caldo” or simply means as a rice porridge. The “lugaw” comes in beef, in pork, and with egg… whatever the parishioners want to have on their porridge and with some spices included.

The ticket for the said project only costs one hundred pesos (Php 100.00) per person. The proceeds will be used for the projects and the utilities of the mentioned church.

In a good way,”Lugaw All You Can” is feeding your tummy and your soul by means of helping at the same time. It simply means, hitting two birds with one stone.

food news: LEFTOVER FOOD FOR THE POOR

Food is no longer a question on nutrition but on survival. Prices of goods and transportation increase which make more Filipinos to eat less than three times a day and most of the times… not at all. Nowadays, 3.4 million Filipino families suffer from hunger while 6.7 million consider themselves to be food-poor.

The Philippine government specifically the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) aims to feed the needy but still admits that they are still waiting for hotels and restaurants to donate their excess food and play a part to the cause. On the other hand, the Philippine Hotel and Restaurant Association of the Philippines (HRAP) says that it is still imperative to discard excess food to ensure quality and safety for everyone. Yet, most restaurant owners are scared to give away their leftover food due to the fact that it may spread disease from the one who eats it beforehand or may cause poisoning due to food spoilage. On the other hand, some restaurant pledged to carry out the Food Donation Act in all of their branches privately.

On the contrary, Red Cross Chairman Richard Gordon encourages food establishments to give away excess food to the needy. As part of the encouragement, Gordon affirms that establishments will not be held liable as long as there was no gross negligence or any malicious intent on their part. Contributors are protected by the law.

Still, many hungry Filipino families were thankful for the cause.
