Oh My Gulay! History


OMG! Representative, Josie E. Paule; East–West Seed Foundation Corporate Secretary and Treasurer, Dr. Mary Ann P. Sayoc; Former Senator Edgardo J. Angara; DepEd Secretary Bro. Armin A.  Luistro; Infant & Pediatric Nutrition Association of the Philippines Executive Director, Alex Castro; and GT Metro Foundation Inc. Assistant Executive Director, Irene Labitad.

In 2011, East-West Seed Philippines partnered with Oh My Gulay! (OMG!), a nutritional advocacy program led by Senator Edgardo J. Angara, to enlist the support of corporate foundations and other private sector groups in replicating the Tanim Sa Kinabukasan (TSK) school-based vegetable gardens in as many Department of Education (DepEd) schools as possible. With malnutrition being identified as a primary cause of poor performance in public elementary schools, DepEd mandated a supplementary feeding program for students called Gulayan sa Paaralan. OMG! is an initiative which complements the feeding program by providing the schools with a source of fresh vegetables. With funding support from selected corporate foundations, the joint cooperation between the DepEd, East-West Seed Foundation and OMG! reached out to more than 70 schools.


In addition to the establishment of vegetable gardens, the OMG! program also incorporated a comprehensive theoretical and practical training program designed for teachers and students to learn about modern vegetable farming technologies.
