The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines held a fundraiser of gastronomic proportions, prepared by 8 talented chefs, all of whom showcased the beauty and quality of local produce.

Hosted in the Makati Shangri-La ballroom, WWF also held an exhibition of renowned underwater photographer Gutsy Tuason’s works, capturing the breathtaking Philippine seas. Before the meal began, WWF Chairman, and President, Gigi Montinola and Joel Palma repectively, spoke about the importance of sustainability and protecting our Earth. 

Impactful, educational and emotional videos informed us that WWF is not solely about the welfare of animals, but that the organization aims to save the planet, which means everyone and everything in it. WWF provides livelihood to Filipinos and hopes to preserve the beauty of our country’s natural wonders. Who knew that simply eating the right foods could make such a difference?

Sustainable Food. Sustainable Future!
