Zonta Club of Makati and Environs works to address local food insecurity crisis
The Zonta Club of Makati and Environs, Philippines, recently partnered with a local Food Share project. The program aims to address COVID-19’s impact on food insecurity in marginalized communities, such as Taguig and Manila.
The Food Share’s past initiatives includes the distribution of food and care packages to targeted families, calling and connecting with mothers to better understand their needs and teaching mothers of indigent families how to grow their own vegetables. Recently, the program has also started offering dance, sports and art classes to the children of the community.
