Sold during the day-long activity were breaded pork chop and chicken, spaghetti, siomai, pearl meatball and fresh lumpia. For dessert, the mothers prepared leche flan, binangkal, pound pie, pineapple pie and banana cupcake. They also prepared delicacies like puto cheese, cuchinta, maja blanca, budbud and biko.
Participants of the Food Festival were mothers of students of BNHS and Banilad Elementary School, and members of the Kalipunan ng Liping Pilipina Federation in the barangay. These women are among those who are enrolled in the Mothers Livelihood Project of Aboitiz Foundation, Inc.’s Adopt-a-School program.
For two years now, from July to March, these women have been participating in livelihood and other skills training sessions conducted by team members of Aboitiz Equity Ventures, Inc. as an employee-initiated outreach activity. During these sessions, they are taught skills that could provide them with alternative means to earn a living.
