THE feeding program of Senator Imee Marcos will officially start in the northern town of Consolacion, Cebu on Monday, September 12, 2022.

Up to 1,000 malnourished children will be fed for 120 consecutive days under the program.

Pamela Baricuatro, Nutribun program focal person, said the activity aims to provide nutritious food to the children.

They will be weighed every 20 days to check if their weight has improved, she said.

The feeding program was launched in the town on Sunday, September 11, to coincide with the birthday of the senator’s father, the late president Ferdinand E. Marcos Sr.

The activity was attended by Mayor Nene Alegado, barangay health workers, barangay nutrition scholars and some of the beneficiaries, among others.
