About Us

Welcome to the Philippine FoodBank Foundation, Inc., where our mission is to combat food insecurity while fostering sustainability and social responsibility

Who We Are

The Philippine FoodBank Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to alleviating hunger and reducing food waste in the Philippines. Founded in 2017 by Dr. Bernie Villegas, Dr. Lito Sandejas, Jimmy Ladao, Danny Navarro and Itong Torres and joined shortly after by Quintin Pastrana, Chito Perez and Mike Torres, we have been at the forefront of food rescue efforts, collecting surplus or near-expiry food products from generous donors such as food producers and retailers. These rescued food items are then distributed to marginalized communities, including orphanages, schools, parishes, and beyond.
