As part of the World Hunger Relief campaign, KFC restaurants across the Philippines donated P5 from each of the sale of their Fully Loved Meal from November 1, 2012 to January 17, 2013. Donation through the campaign’s canister program was also another option.

“Shared joy is at the heart of what we are as a brand. The World Food Programme has given us at KFC Philippines a means to share what we have with those who need it most over the last four years. We would like to thank our loyal customers and employees for their generosity…,” shares KFC Philippines General Manager Liza Leah Calma-Juinio.

This  advocacy will support a school feeding programme for central Mindanao providing upto 750,000 school meals.

“WFP is grateful to KFC Philippines and its customers for this contribution, which will support WFP’s local efforts to fight hunger among school children… KFC’s annual donations, made through the World Hunger Relief campaign, are a testament to the company’s very real commitment to our cause of ending hunger,” said WFP Philippines Deputy Country Director Asaka Nyangara.
