KALINGA (CARE KITCHENS)
Kusina ng Kalinga (KnK) is Gawad Kalinga’s strategic
response response to address chronic hunger and malnutrition among Filipino children ages 0 to 12
years old and pregnant and lactating mothers. KnK is a replicable program where thousands of
nutritious vegetable-based meals are prepared by parent volunteers from their respective community
kitchens and then picked up by parents/guardians and/or delivered to children in public schools,
communities, on the streets, and even in disaster and conflict areas. But just as hunger is
a condition that goes beyond empty stomachs, the KnK model also goes beyond feeding.
Each community kitchen is established through the collaborative efforts of parents, volunteers,
local government units, schools, private individuals, organizations and corporate partners.
Community kitchens are fueled and sustained by bayanihan (solidarity and teamwork) as
a living proof that collective caring and sharing is the key to ending hunger among children.
Through Kusina ng Kalinga, we build caring communities to nurture the future of our country.
Each kitchen creates a zero hunger zone for at least 300 children. No child goes hungry under the
watch of these community kitchens. Those who are not hungry can end hunger. Hunger ends where
