Meet The Team

Food Rescue Philippines was initiated by Mac Florendo in September 2015 in Dumaguete City.

The project aims to lessen food waste and to assist individuals that are in poverty or have low income.

Mac and the volunteers use bicycles, skateboards, etc. as transportation in distributing and collecting the food.

The movement has since expanded to Metro Manila where food rescues are coordinated with volunteers through Facebook Messenger.

Mr. Magic is also a voice-over artist. His passion for helping others got Food Rescue Philippines started.

“Knowing that there are poor families and individuals in the community and food wasted every day, I told myself that Food Rescue Philippines is really something that Dumaguete would need, same for the rest of the Philippines and ASEAN.”

He has been involved in different environmental projects, both locally and internationally. He has a strong interest in environmental issues, photography, and film making.

His dream is to be a filmmaker to create public awareness using advocacies to the older and younger generations.
