Published on 02 February 2009

Despite the absence of National Ambassador against Hunger KC Concepcion, Philippine Pizza, Inc. successfully turned over the amount of P1,299,909 to the United Nations World Food Programme last January 29 at the Mandarin Suites in Gateway Mall, Araneta Center. The amount was raised through donations made by Pizza Hut and Taco Bell customers around the country. Representing Philippine Pizza, Inc. was Chief Operating Officer Lars Peterson while WFP Country Director and Representative Stephen Anderson came to accept the donation. Cited as the biggest health dilemma facing mankind worldwide, hunger and malnutrition remain to be the United Nations top primary concern particularly to countries categorized under the so-called Third World bracket. Here in the Philippines, the UN's World Food Programme focuses its anti-hunger campaign in Mindanao.
