CALAMBA CITY – Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) has started giving monthly food supply for Punta Integrated School’s (PIS) feeding program as part of the company’s commitment to promote love of country and nation-building through education.
On June 3, at the start of the new school year, BAVI donated Chooks-to-Go Liempo, Marinado marinated chicken, rice, and dressed chicken. The company also donated a freezer to store the products.
BAVI’s yearlong sponsorship is part of the school’s Adopt-a-School project, which aims to partner with organizations to help the school provide for its needs.
According to PIS Principal Bernardita Salazar, a large fraction of the school’s population is composed of underprivileged and malnourished children.
“Some of them complain of having headaches,” she said, “and we know we can’t just give them paracetamol, because the headaches are because they come to school with empty stomachs.”
BAVI first partnered with PIS in the Brigada Eskwela activity last month, when the company provided paint, cleaning materials, and workforce to prepare classrooms for the upcoming school year.
According to BAVI President and General Manager Ronald Mascariñas, BAVI is committed to help provide classrooms that are conducive to learning. “We believe that this will inspire our young students to study more, learn new things, including love for country, towards becoming the best that they can be,” he said.
Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) is the number-one rotisserie chicken company in the Philippines and is the country’s second largest poultry integrator, together with its sister company, Bounty Fresh Foods, Inc. (BFFI).
BAVI’s retail brands include Chooks-to-Go, Uling Roasters, and Reyal. The company also distributes dressed chicken products in supermarkets, wet markets, hotels, and restaurants outside Metro Manila under the Bounty Fresh Chicken brand.
