MINGOY THE FOOD SHUTTLE

Mingoy the food shuttle travels where it’s needed to feed the hungry.

Meet Mingoy, NVC’s Food Shuttle

Where there are hungry children in the Philippines, there’s no mountain high enough, no valley low enough, no river wide enough to keep NVC’s Mingo Meals from getting to empty stomachs to nourish and sustain. NVC can now do its job a lot faster with its food shuttle, Mingoy.

Mingoy serves as a mobile base for the preparation of Mingo Meals for young children, as well as hot meals for adults in need. Mingoy can travel where it’s needed within the whole of Negros Island, and as far as neighboring islands Cebu and Panay via RoRo (roll-on/roll-off ships) for emergency relief.

Because of recent concerns related to social distancing and mass gatherings, all Mingoy the Food Shuttle trips are currently suspended. We hope and pray Mingoy will be able to travel again soon!

SOUP KITCHEN

Mingoy has a kitchen right inside the bus, positioned beside a wide service window that makes Mingoy an effective and efficient distribution center. Chef Richard Ynayan, Director of the Institute for Culinary Arts at the University of St. La Salle in Bacolod, helped us design the mobile kitchen.

FOOD BANK

Mingoy is also an outlet for the Good Food Grocer, the food bank project of Rise Against Hunger Philippines. The Good Food Grocer sources donations of near-expiring packaged food products in good condition, which are resold at lower prices to marginalized communities. Mingoy serves a rolling store for the food bank. 

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

A journey on board Mingoy is a memorable, fun-filled way to volunteer as a group. We’ve welcomed families, schools, alumni groups, and corporations, whose members take part in the various tasks needed to feed hundreds as well as hold games and learning experiences for the community.

SPONSOR A FOOD TRIP

Sponsorship of a food trip by Mingoy starts at P18,000 depending on distance from Bacolod City.

The donation package includes Mingo Champorado with pandesal for 100 kids and 100 adults, or equivalent hot meals.
