EntrePinoy will open to the public starting November 1 until November 12.

The class will be split into six intervals of two, with each interval focusing on different culinary products such as donuts, polvoron, noodle technology, piaya, hopia, and steamed buns.

Registration is open to non-Manilenos and registrants from all over the country until Oct. 31.

The class was developed by MBP and the Local Economic Development and Investment Promotion Office (LEDIPO) with the help of local farmers, Tinapayan Festival, Pilmico Flour, and the Junior Chamber International Manila.

MBP Director Levi Facundo said the class was launched as a way of providing pandemic-stricken Filipinos with different livelihood opportunities. It will be the first of many other sectoral programs and projects.

“We are not stopping because the pandemic is not stopping as well. Patuloy tayong mag-iisip ng mga paraan para matulungan lahat ng sector the best way possible (We will continue looking for ways to help all sectors in the best way possible),” he said.
