With children’s health and education imperiled by the pandemic, Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) continues its nutrition projects in various schools.
In Cebu’s Mandaue City Central School, BAVI recently concluded a three-month feeding program as part of the school’s Adopt-a-School initiative.
BAVI gave the school hundreds of Bounty Fresh Chicken and Chooks-to-Go Marinado Chicken packs, which were then distributed to 77 undernourished pupils. The distribution spanned from January to March. It was the second time that BAVI took part in the school’s nutrition drive.
“Inspiring students to become responsible citizens who love their country requires that children are healthy enough to understand their lessons,” BAVI president Ronald Mascariñas had said. “By supporting schools in this way, our efforts in fostering patriotism among the youth become more effective.”
Over the years, BAVI has been increasing its support for the education sector. In 2019, it joined Ayala Foundation’s Maging Magiting campaign to give national flags to over thousands of schools across the country. It is also a committed partner in the Department of Education’s National Teacher’s Month celebration.
BAVI is the Philippines’ largest rotisserie chicken company and is part of the country’s second-largest poultry integrator.
Its brands include Chooks-to-Go, Uling Roasters, Bounty Fresh, Adobo Connection, and HeiHei.
Through its pioneering Zero Antibiotics Chicken program, BAVI leads the local poultry industry in antibiotic stewardship in pursuit of a healthier Philippines.
