For the second part of our Culinary Social Responsibility (CSR) projects of Masflex (For the Love of Cooking) & KitchenPro (The Culinary Standard) brands, we flew to Panglao, Bohol to donate kitchenware items and conduct a cooking demo to Lourdes National High School last August 30, 2018.
In continuous partnership with the “Angat Buhay” Program of the Office of the Vice President (OVP), we were able to conduct the Visayas leg of this Culinary Scholarships, Culinary Education, & Livelihood Programs. This program by the OVP is the best avenue for us to contribute to society as the Vice President’s program is focused on helping the farthest & poorest Filipino communities. One of their core areas is to improve educational standards in Public High Schools and had a specific need for donations for culinary equipment.
Our President, Mr. Haresh Mirchandani, personally visited this school to turn-over the donated cookware, bakeware, dinnerware, & kitchenware. Our brand ambassador & endorser, Chef Gene Gonzalez, didn’t miss his chance to do a 1 hour Knife Skills Workshop & Inspirational Talk for the 100 culinary students, teachers & Hotel and Resort owners. Vice President Leni Robredo and her team led the said event.
In addition to this, we awarded scholarships to the Top 2 students of Lourdes High School. The culinary scholarships will be availed at the Center for Asian Culinary Studies (CACS) Manila, which is owned by Chef Gene Gonzalez. Included in the scholarship are free accommodation, transportation, & chef kits.
Here’s the highlight of this year’s Culinary Social Responsibility (CSR) of Masflex and KitchenPro wherein our two scholars namely Vic Anthony Tacder and Ralfh Ulysses Clemen from Lourdes National High School in Panglao, Bohol are graduated with the Certificate Program in Culinary Course which they showcase what professional techniques and delicious recipes they learned through legacy buffet held in CACS Davao last January 26, 2020.

This was our first time to have the culinary scholarship program at the Center for Asian Culinary Studies Davao Campus so we would also like to thank all the instructors and the academic team for teaching and taking great care of the scholars while in Davao.
The funding for these projects are derived from a portion of the proceeds of the sales of Masflex and KitchenPro products. We have indicated this on the packaging of our products so that customers are aware that for every purchase of our products they are also contributing to these projects.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Vice President VP Leni Robredo and the Office of the VP – Angat Buhay Team for helping us find these highly deserving culinary students from Panglao, Bohol who undergoes culinary training scholarship program.
To all our customers, thank you for your support & patronage to make this program possible. A portion of the proceeds of the sales of every Masflex & KitchenPro item that you’ve purchased really benefits these future KitchenPros of our country!
Truly we would not be able to effectively and efficiently conduct these Culinary Social responsibilities (CSR) Projects without all of our partners’ assistance.
