WFP is working with the government of the Philippines, particularly the Department of Social Welfare and Development and the Department of Education to provide hot, nutritious school meals.

Restaurants that participated included: Bigg’s Diner, Cibo, The Coffee Experience, CoffeeBreak, Figaro, HotShots, JD Bakeshop, KFC, Mushroomburger, The Flying Pig, Holy Cow, The Sandwich Guy and Wham! Burgers.
Unilever's Filipino school meals is a pilot program that has generated interest and enthusiasm around the world. Unilever will be expanding the program to other countries in 2013. Unilever has been working with the WFP since 2006. Since that date, it has contributed US$17.7 million to WFP programs around the world.
