The MEALenium Project is a community project.
It is founded by two teenagers. Joshua Emmanuel Coliangco Tan and Philip Sebastian (“Basti”) Belmonte, both high school students, they attend outreach activities with their families annually in Payatas. However, they recently felt the need to create a program that could continue providing for the community year-round. Thus, the idea for the MEALenium Project was born.
Joshua and Basti are collaborating closely with the Payatas Orion Foundation and Fr. Julio Cuesta, a St. Benedict Parish priest and a committed advocate for the Payatas children. Together, they will work to ensure that the neediest children in the community receive the nourishment and support that all children deserve.
