Donate to Free Lunch Program
Marissa's Kitchen is a non-profit, children's charity organization based in North Carolina, USA with its program beneficiaries in Cebu, Philippines. It is aimed to promote well-being among children, committing itself to helping them develop the different aspects of their life. It is also dedicated to working with the communities where children are often neglected and suffering because of poverty.
At present, the Free Lunch Program is the heart of Marissa's Kitchen. It provides free lunch to hundreds of school children in Daanbantayan municipality of Cebu Province in the Philippines. It was launched two years ago and has just started its feeding activities for the school year 2008-2009. Now on its third year, the organization hopes to expand and extend the provision of free lunch to the children of other schools in the Philippines.
MK also supports these schoolchildren with their desire to finish school by providing them necessary school supplies. Just before this school year opened in June, MK had already distributed writing materials to them.
To accomplish its mission, Marissa's Kitchen needs to mobilize through your support, monetary or any form. Marissa's Kitchen needs to have more funds received from individuals and other organizations, either foreign or local, to finance its programs. This is the main purpose of Marissa's Kitchen, PinayFreeLunch website. If you wished already to help Marissa's Kitchen feed these children, please donate now.
Please Note: Marissa's Kitchen has had to suspend the Free lunch program due to lack of funding. Virtually 100% of our funding comes from RoadTrucker Inc, who has regretfully had to reduce that funding considerably due to expenses incurred in building their new offices in Calape, Daanbantayan, Cebu. RoadTrucker felt they could do more good for our community by providing permanent jobs and they needed more space. We still have some funding to help with individual school projects like buying needed school supplies, learning tools and other help for our schools. RoadTrucker said they will continue to fund smaller projects and will reconsider supporting the feeding program once the new building is completed and paid for.
Countless children in the Philippines go to school with no proper clothing and insufficient learning resources.Many others can not attend school.
