Expanded Mega Bigay Sustansya to help nourish more children nationwide

Malasakit has always been at the heart of Mega Global Corporation’s operations. In everything they do, they aim to bring positive change to the lives of Filipino families, especially in addressing the problem of malnutrition. This is the heart of the Mega Bigay Sustansya program, first launched in 2019.

With Mega Bigay Sustansya, through the Mega Tiu Lim Foundation (MTLF), Mega has helped nourish hundreds of less fortunate Filipino children, improving their health through well-balanced meals and better knowledge of basic nutrition despite the pandemic.

In its fourth year of transforming the lives of beneficiaries across the Philippines, Mega Bigay Sustansya has been substantially expanded, promising to bring positive change to even more people. Officially rolled out last Tuesday, June 28, at the Prime Hotel in Quezon City, Mega Bigay Sustansya Year 4 promises more sustainable feeding days, more coverage, more engagement, and more partners. The launch event was graced by representatives from partner agencies and organizations. Media people and mommy bloggers and influencers also joined the occasion.

To achieve its goal of program expansion, MTLF teamed up with the Department of Science and Technology, Food and Nutrition Research Institute (DOST-FNRI), the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), and Reach Out Feed Philippines (ROFP). Meals and recipes will be co-created and nutrition workshops for the parents will be developed with DOST-FNRI; DSWD will assist in gathering volunteers and identifying areas where help with malnutrition is most needed, and; ROFP will help with meal preparation and distribution, LGU coordination, and beneficiary assessment.
