PLANNING to get started on a healthy new lifestyle but not knowing where to source the right food stuff to build your new diet around? Well, a visit to ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya and G Stuff’s Health and Wellness Fair, happening this weekend, October 2 to 4, 2015 (Friday to Sunday), at the Rockwell Tent in Makati City, should help you get started towards the right direction.
ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya Foundation, Inc. (previously ABS-CBN Foundation, Inc.), the public service arm of ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation which aims to awaken hope in the Filipino through implementing projects via multi-sectoral partnerships in the spirit of bayanihan, has teamed up with G Stuff, which is rooted on the concept of helping communities while saving the environment and sharing with people the beauty of using natural ingredients (no chemicals, no preservatives, no white sugar, and no white flour), to put together this weekend’s bazaar.
For an entrance fee of Php200 for each day’s affair, you can shop for fresh produce curated by the Department of Agriculture as well as learn about healthy products and services from some of the country’s most respected establishments. By joining the Health and Wellness Fair, you will not only be nourishing your body and spirit but also nourish the Philippines, as the event will raise funds for the farmers of Sibuyan and Guimaras. The amount of money raised will find the building of an infrastructure and distribution system that shall make organic produce more accessible to the market. The Department of Agriculture will be giving seeds and training to the said farming communities, while the Philippine military aims to offer their assistance by providing manpower to plant crops and trees in areas of conflict in the country.
Tickets to the Health and Wellness Fair are available at G Stuff stores at the Power Plant Mall (Rockwell, Makati City), TriNoma (Quezon City) and Ayala Town Center (Muntinlupa City), and also at the ABS-CBN Lingkod Kapamilya office along Mother Ignacia Road, Quezon City. Walk-ins can also buy tickets at the event itself.
What’s more: Exclusive dinners and a brunch are being prepared by some of the country’s top chefs, and you can reserve seats for these special dining affairs that feature the chefs’ takes on healthy cuisine. On October 2 (Friday), Chef Jessie Sincioco whips up a delightful Filipino-inspired healthy dinner. October 3 (Saturday) will be a culinary tour-de-force with Chefs Robby Goco, Ramon Antonio, Mikel Zaguirre, Myke Sarthou and Miko Aspiras and Destileria Limtuaco’s Olivia Limpe-Aw, who will be joining forces to put together a dinner to remember. Brunch on October 4 (Sunday) will see Chef Kalel Chan of the Raintree Group (which includes M Café and Chelsea Kitchen) challenge his own creativity and knowledge on healthy cuisine. The ticket price for a curated meal is Php1,500.
