The MEALenium Project Background:
It was founded by two teenagers in year 2015. Philip Sebastian Belmonte and Joshua Emmanuel Tan, both high school students, felt the need to create a program that could continue providing meals for undernourished kids in the community year-round.
While Belmonte and Tan are now in college, the work they have started continues in Payatas. The Mealenium Project is currently managed by Erika C. Chua, Scholarship Program Chairperson; Francis C. Gonzales, Feeding Program Chairperson; and Isaac Theodore Siy, Tutorials Progam Chairperson.
The MEALenium Project works 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 ensure that the neediest children in the community receive the nourishment and support that all children deserve.
