Monday through Friday, 10 AM and 4 PM, we are feeding kids in some of the worst impoverished areas around Manila. Our full-time cook for the feedings has been cooking for nearly two hours before we load up to leave. A Registered Nurse and local Pastor come along as part of the Feeding Team.
In addition to this core group of servants we include volunteers from visiting teams on mission trips. There may be six on a feeding or there may be 66. The children we are feeding ALWAYS outnumber those helping with the feedings. Typically, we provide about 200 servings of a hot, nutritional, delicious rice-based food. The children bring their cups, plates, bowls, pitchers, or plastic bags to us and we attempt to fill them up. The kids are so happy to see us but once you have experienced feeding them you will be the one who is blessed.
Scripture tells us we will have the poor with us always. Then we are also commanded to feed the hungry and clothe the naked. The Feeding Program is attempting to honor God and love the children living in poverty.
