Driven by the utmost concern on the current plight of hunger & malnutrition of the underprivileged, the concept of seeking donation of soon to expire products from reputable companies for distribution to the marginalized families was born on November 4, 2016
The group composed of Mr Bernie Villegas, Lito Sandejas, Jimmy Ladao, Danny Navarro & Itong Torres formed the Philippine Foodbank Foundation Inc.
The foundation aims to distribute these products to the marginalized utilizing parishes, the religious, orphanages, schools & charitable institutions as their partners to reach the grassroots.
