On May 28 last year, NVCF sent its first shipment of Mingo Meals to the evacuation centers.

In the past seven years, NVCF had brought relief not only to the poorest of the poor in Negros Occidental and Bukidnon provinces but also to victims of supertyphoon 'Yolanda' and the Zamboanga siege.
Camille Genuino, NVCF spokesperson, averred that the group "has proven that it is not difficult to make nutritious food readily available every day or even in times of disasters." The Mingo meals, she said, have been distributed in areas severely affected by Typhoons "Ruby" and "Yolanda," helping children and families in need.
