“MESA NI MISIS” NUTRITIONAL TALK AND COOKING DEMO A RESOUNDING SUCCESS. The nutritional talk and cooking demo “Mesa ni Misis” was successfully conducted at SM Center Ormoc on Tuesday, July 25, 2023 by Juana Yupangco as part of the city’s Nutrition and Wellness Month celebration under the theme, “Healthy Diet Growing Affordable for All.”

Accordingly, “Mesa ni Misis” works with local government units and public schools to help develop their nutrition programs. Its creator, Ms. Yupangco, has also collaborated with leading restaurants in Manila to promote the use of local vegetables in their menus. She also conducts classes and seminars on cooking with only vegetables at “Bahay Kubo” in the Philippines because they are available all year round. The activity was organized by LGU-Ormoc led by City Mayor Lucy Torres Gomez, and the City Agriculture Department (CAD) led by City Agriculturist Maria Elena Mendoza, in collaboration with the City Tourism Office, the City Social and Welfare Department (CSWD), the City Health Department (CHD), and SM Center Ormoc.
