A group of teenagers in Antipolo City banded together to cook pansit, a Filipino comfort food, and distributed it to street people in the vicinity of the National Shrine of the Our Lady of Peace and Good Voyage.

Peter Arandia, leader of The Pansit Canton Chat Group, said his fellow teenagers decided to band together under one common agenda: to give free pansit to hungry people on the street.

Manila Bulletin spotted Arandia and his group members while they were distributing the packed pansit to several sampaguita vendors, a coffee vendor, and some persons with disability who were outside the gate of the Antipolo Cathedral earlier this week.

Several vendors approached Arandia’s group to ask for the food pack.

The teenagers told the Manila Bulletin that their efforts are rewarded when they see the recipient of pansit happy and thankful. (Nel Andrade)
