We did a food rescue in Fairview collecting the following:
|2 large boxes of chocolates||3|
|18 packets candies||0.5|
|9 Irish cream drinks||0.5|
|900 grams brocolli||0.2|
|9 packets broth cubes||0.1|
|1 kg sugar||0.2|
|1 packet banana||0*|
|250 grams cauliflower||0|
|500 grams sitaw||0|
*Zero points means the item cannot be eaten or are have less parts that are edible
We took public transportation, spending 90 pesos for 2 people taking 2 trips since the large boxes were bulky. The idea is to lower the money cost of doing food rescue in order to make it sustainable.
|Kilos||5 + 8|
We were supposed to give the collection to a charity group in a nearby squatter community. But our contact there was unavailable. He was afraid that distributing the chocolates without their group in place would lead to a crowd forming.
So we gave the food instead to the staff of a nearby restaurant and to some children along Commonwealth Avenue in Tandang Sora Quezon City.
