      For those who are in the Philippines ...

      17 May 2011

      Mga Kapuso, Kapatid, Kapamilya at mga Kaibigan,

      Greetings!
      The World Agape Association, Inc. (WAAI) in cooperation with the Food Bowl Night
      Market Convenors Group (FBNM-CG) will embark on advocacy activities to promote
      safe and healthy food choices from organic, biodynamic and natural farming
      systems.


      FILIPINO FOOD FESTIVALS (FFF) with the theme: KALAKALANG ORGANIKO: ANG GALING NG
      MAGSASAKANG PILIPINO! will feature Filipino Culture in Food through a series of
      cultural rediscovery of traditio nal/indigenous/exotic food festivals that are
      culturally Filipino. Activities include fora/lectures/seminars by industry
      players & experts on technologies, indigenous, delicious, safe and healthy food
      cooking demos, contests/challenges and raw food preparations, Organic & Natural
      Food Free Taste-Tival, live raw indigenous music & performances. The event is
      OPEN FREE TO THE PUBLIC. (Please see below Calendar of Events)


      Our objective is to strengthen organic market promotion, development and
      networking to create market demand from the consumers and institutional buyers.


      In this regard, may we seek for your support by being one with us in this
      advocacy and make your presence felt by attending and actively participating in
      our lined up activities. The FBNM activities will commence this Friday, 20 May,
      and Saturday, 21 May and next Friday, 27 May and Saturday, 28 May. The FFF will
      start in June 3 until August 6, 2011 every Friday and Saturday at 4 to 11pm at
      the ETON Centris Walk, EDSA corner Quezon Ave (MRT Station), Quezon City.

      The Food Bowl Night Market has started to operate as marketing and trading hub
      last March 18, 2011. As the convergence area of organic and natural producers
      and consumers, we are showcasing the produce and products of farmers,
      fisherfolks and organizations providing safe and healthy food to Filipinos from
      fruits and vegetables, fisheries, indigenous plants & herbs, livestock and
      poultry, eco-friendly products, among others.

      0920-969-3242 or (02) 806-2448 or your FBNM-CG Representative.

      our invitation.
