Join the food conversation this Nutrition Month!

Feature story - July 10, 2015
When we talk of hunger and nutrition issues in the Philippines, many factors come into play, such as poverty, agriculture, access to food, consumption, and our existing food systems. But where do consumers – ordinary people like you and me – fit into this plot? How do we become part of the solutions? You may not realize it yet, but actually, the story begins with you.

This month, we’ll bring the nutrition conversation back around, starting with the meals that Filipinos eat every day.  All you have to do to join is show us what’s on your plate!

  1. Photograph your meal, or get a friend to take a picture of you and your meal
  2. Type your name, age, occupation, city, the hashtag “#AnongFoodMo”* with 2-3 sentences describing your meal into the caption field before you post the image
  3. Post the photo to Instagram, Tumblr, Facebook, or Twitter.
  4. Tag a friend! 

*NOTE: Make sure your privacy settings are set to Public. Otherwise, we will not be able to view your posts. 

Here are some sample posts, you can also take a selfie with your food if you like ;-)


We recommend that you do this for all 3 meals in one full day (breakfast, lunch, and dinner), or as many times as you wish! Just remember the #AnongFoodMo tag* so we can find it.

What campaign is this for?

It’s for the Food and Ecological Agriculture campaign! We are challenging Filipinos to reconnect with their food, where it’s coming from, and who produces it, so that we can turn away from our broken food system and support farming that’s safe, healthy, and sustainable. Ecological farming is the only solution because it ensures food production and nutrition security in the face of climate change.

What will Greenpeace do with the photos?

We’re going to compile and present the food portraits to a food and nutrition expert for analysis. These results, together with accompanying research, will help us gain more insight into the kind of food that majority of Filipinos consume every day, and give us a deeper understanding of how this relates to the country’s food security.
