THE DEPARTMENT of Social Welfare and Development on Friday launched the Food Banking Project with the various food chains nationwide by asking them to donate unconsumed or unsold food to feed the hungry. The project is being pilot tested until December in two DSWD centers and in one community in Mandaluyong City.

DSWD Undersecretary Celia Yangco said the collected food from the food partners would be sorted out by center nutritionists to determine the recommended energy nutrient intake for the intended residents and beneficiaries.

To ensure food safety, training and capability building on food handling shall be given to designated food handlers, she said.
