While most families were busy with Noche Buena preparations on Christmas eve, the volunteers of the newly launched “Kusina ni Rody Para sa Pobre” (Rody’s [Duterte] Kitchen for the Poor) were also preparing vats of spaghetti and arroz caldo to share with the homeless people in Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental, central Philippines.
Right now, this spin-off version of the highly successful Duterte’s Kitchen is still new and only operates from the volunteers’ kitchens; they just bring the food to the streets in a truck. They do not have a drop-off center for donations but a lot of people were already interested in donating various items.
According to netizen Jade Tee, she and Deo Dax Sillero Cordova are accepting “in-kind” donations but not money.
The group hopes to continue feeding the homeless people in Dumaguete not just during the holiday season so that, like the mission of Duterte’s Kitchen, no one would sleep hungry because they can find food from the soup kitchen.
Isn’t it wonderful that this advocacy is now gaining ground across the country? It would surely be awesome to see lots of similar soup kitchens open in key cities across the country to help feed the hungry people living in the streets…
