Since 2007, Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) has been implementing the Busog, Lusog, Talino (BLT) School Feeding Program nationwide, which aims to address short term hunger and malnutrition among public elementary pupils. In 2016, the Department of Education’s (DepEd) budget for its School based Feeding Program (SBFP) covered all undernourished pupils in public elementary schools in the country. In support of this, JGF implemented the BLT School Feeding Kitchen (BLT Kitchen), increasing the number of pupils to the program has served over
the years to more than 170,000. Through partnership with DepEd and local stakeholders, the program enables public elementary schools to conduct its school feeding in an efficient and effective manner. The BLT Kitchen is similar to a commissary that centralizes food preparation for a cluster of schools, enabling them to serve more children with less time and effort.
