For the entire month of October 2015, the Ministry of Mushrooms will be advocating their 3rd “Mushrooms Go Pink PH”, a breast cancer awareness campaign that aims to educate people about the potential health benefits of eating mushrooms!
In 2013, Marco Lobregat, founder of Ministry of Mushrooms, collaborated with 50 highly praised restaurants and food brands in the Philippines. The goal was to encourage the creation and serving of more dishes using locally grown mushrooms, all the while helping raise cancer prevention awareness and contributing funds to the ICanServe Foundation.
Ministry of Mushrooms works with a group of young farmers such as John Regie Jaminal, Ivan Bagatsing of Perfect Mushrooms, and Billy Joel Santos Kabutehan Farms, a Gawad Kalinga cooperative that ensures the availability of locally grown mushrooms for the Mushrooms Go Pink PH campaign this October.
