Mushrooms Go Pink PH Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign

'Shroom Trip For A Cause: Eat Your Mushrooms this Month for Mushrooms Go Pink PH


Here's a delicious idea for kick-starting the month of October: why not go on a 'shroom trip for breast cancer awareness? October 2013 is all about mushroom for Ministry of Mushrooms, Inc. and the ICanServe Foundation.

"The 'shroomtastic' dishes they've created for this year's campaign have notched up with the introduction of new mushrooms!" shares Marco Lobregat, Ministry of Mushroom, Inc. president. For this year's Mushrooms Go Pink PH Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, they have collaborated with restaurants and food establishments to showcase the mushroom as a delicious, nutritious, and highly versatile food of choice when dining around the metro.

"Mushroom is the only non-animal source of Vitamin D, apart from you getting it from the sunlight," shares Marco, "they are what they call immunomodulators, meaning they got properties that really help the immune system either when it's hyperactive or when it's weak." Ministry of Mushrooms sells fresh and dried oyster mushrooms, mushroom products, and mushroom growing materials at the Salcedo Saturday Market and Legaspi Sunday Market. 'Cook whatever you're used to cooking in the house--almost all Filipino dishes--and add mushrooms to it," Marco suggests. 
Ten percent of the cost of each special dish with mushrooms purchased will be donated to ICANServe Foundation through the campaign. Make your month memorable by feasting on this flavorful fungi! Are your favorite restaurants part of this year's Mushrooms Go Pink PH? Here's your cheat sheet for your 'shroom trip: a list of participating establishments and their respective sumptuous offerings that will leave your bellies blissful and will give back to ICanServe Foundation.
