Duterte’s Kitchen transfers from Cubao to Manresa
Duterte’s Kitchen, the donation-driven initiative to feed the street children in Cubao, is transferring to Manresa, Quezon City.
The initiative’s official Facebook page announced the development on a post yesterday, July 7.
Ang Duterte's Kitchen ay umiikot araw araw sa ibat ibang lugar sa kamaynilaan at sa mga ibat ibang lalawigan sa boung Pilipinas. Nais naming ibahagi ang mithiin na maibsan ang kagutuman sa abot ng aming makakaya. Nasa transition period po ng paglilipat ang Duterte's Kitchen Cubao sa Manressa Quezon City.Ang aming mga mobile kitchen ay pumunta rin sa mga lugar ng mga nasunugan. Naghahatid ng mainit na arrozcaldo sa mga mahihirap na eskwelahan at dumadalaw din sa mga depressed areas. Higit sa lahat sa panahon ng kalamidad tahimik mang dumadating ang Duterte's Kitchen ngunit sa aming munting adhikain na maging inspirasyon at makapagbigay ng pagasa na balang araw #WalaNgBatangMagugutom at #WalaNgMatutulogNaGutom

The announcement came not long after one netizen, Anthony S. Comedia, uploaded yesterday photos of Duterte’s Kitchen in Cubao, showing that the spot has turned into a thrift shop. The photos went viral and had people wondering if the initiative was no more.
“Duterte’s kitchen noon… Tindahan ng ukay-ukay na ngayon,” wrote Comedia. (Duterte’s Kitchen then, second-hand shop now.)
“Duterte’s Kitchen ningas kugon? Hindi kinaya ang TRAIN Law?” the netizen asked in his caption of the photos. (Duterte’s Kitchen loses enthusiasm on something it started? Can’t it handle the [Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion] TRAIN law?)
Instantly becoming the talk of the town after it was started in October 2016, Duterte’s Kitchen claims to promote volunteerism.
Duterte’s Kitchen was originally a project of President Rodrigo Duterte when he was still mayor of Davao. His party, Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban), adopted the initiative for street children in Metro Manila. JB
