Pilipinas Kontra Gutom (PKG)

Pilipinas Kontra Gutom Initiated by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Zero Hunger, PKG is a multi-sectoral coalition composed of government agencies, non-profit organizations, the academe, and the private sector. Its mission is to address the nation’s problem of involuntary hunger, including challenges on food production, food distribution and accessibility, and hidden hunger and malnutrition.

Pilipinas Kontra Gutom is a multi-sectoral movement founded to help eradicate hunger and malnutrition in the Philippines by 2030. It is the collective effort of the government, NGOs, the academe and the private sector to address the root of the nation’s concerns on hunger – striving to improve food production and distribution, to repurpose food surplus, to curb malnutrition and to reduce hunger incidences caused by crises.

Through these efforts, Pilipinas Kontra Gutom is committed to get every Filipino household involved in making sure that no one experiences involuntary hunger ever again.

820 million people around the world go to sleep hungry every night. Ending hunger by 2030 and ensuring access to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round is Goal #2 in the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. In the Philippines, an estimated 4 million Filipino families experienced involuntary hunger (or hunger due to lack of food to eat) at least once, based on the 2020 4th Quarter Social Weather Station survey. With the pandemic, the numbers continue to rise at an alarming rate.
