For the victims of Typhoon Haiyan

We are truly saddened with the unprecedented disaster in the Philippines brought by super typhoon Haiyan, causing damage, dislocation of families, broken lives and deaths.

In light of this recent tragedy, EGS CALCMENU has coordinated with ...the local government institution, Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), to partake in a social activity dedicated to the calamity victims. Last Sunday, November 17, 2013, our staff visited Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City to help packing relief goods and other donations for the survivors in the hard hit provinces such as Tacloban, Leyte, Samar, etc.

Filipinos are always known for being patient and resilient amidst the pain and grief over such fearsome calamities, and this devastation has proven the first statement true. With the help of their fellow countrymen and with global assistance, they will surely be able to stand up, recover and rebuild their lives.

Reducing Food Wastes

How can we prevent food from going to waste?According to a study by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), approximately 1.3 billion tons of food produced are lost or wasted annually. Food wastes refer to food products ready for human consumption that are lost or wasted, while food losses refer to food lost during its production, processing or post-harvest stage.[1] This situation has caused many alarming food security problems and environmental challenges, which gave rise to many anti-food waste campaigns. It is a never-ending challenge to most restaurant owners and managers.
