From November 10 to 21, 2014, the Lingkod Committee managed a charity food stall in the high school canteen. For two weeks, sophomore and junior committee members spent their lunch periods frying, powdering, and selling popcorn in three flavors: barbecue, sour cream, and cheese. The project, coordinated by Scott Chua, was entitled “Freshly Popped.”

In just two weeks, the Lingkod Committee sold more than 650 bags of popcorn, and raised P32,550. The proceeds of the project were donated to the scholarship fund of ERDA Tech, an adopted vocational school for the underprivileged.

The Lingkod Committee would like to thank Fly Ace Corporation for graciously sponsoring the cooking oil and making this project possible.
