A Product of Change: Filipino Schools Feed Hungry Students

Commitment by

Askinosie Chocolate

In 2016, Askinosie Chocolate committed to support nutrition improvement for 800 children in cocoa-growing communities in the Philippines, through a school-based social enterprise and school lunch program. Askinosie has been working with an elementary school in Davao since 2010, helping sell a cocoa product made by school parents on U.S. markets, and directing proceeds to a school lunch program. After launching this program, A Product of Change™, severe malnutrition (wasting) has been eliminated among students in the school, and school attendance and test scores have measurably improved. In order to scale this work and enhance its sustainability, Askinosie will support the elementary school to develop training materials for replicating the program in other schools. Askinosie will partner on training development, provide initial loans for product development, and provide monitoring and evaluation for program impact.
