Two personalities who trace their roots to Manila visited Tondo Wednesday for the launch of a center that will keep children’s bellies and hearts full.

Mayor Isko Moreno joined San Miguel Corporation (SMC) President and Chief Operating Officer Ramon Ang for the opening of SMC Community Center, a food bank and learning institution for poor children.

The two “lodis”— one in politics and the other in business— kicked off the SMC Community Center’s operations by donning aprons and serving San Miguel’s tasty food products to kids from Tondo.

Ang said the establishment of the SMC Community Center is his way of giving back to the city where he grew up.

“Batang Tondo ako eh. Binabalik ko sa lugar kung saan ako galing,” he said.

The center is expected to provide at least 1 million meals yearly over the next decade.
