eco-KALAN-C & eco-Magic Box in School Free Noon Meal Program
The eco-KALAN-C and eco-Magic Box were first introduced into the public schools’ lunch feeding program at the South City Elementary School in Mangnao, Dumaguete City. By May 2010, the eco-KALAN-C & eco-Magic Box have been given and demonstrated to 50 schools in preparation for the resumption of the Free Noon Meal Program being piloted in Negros Oriental.>
The eco-KALAN-C has the ability to rapidly boil water in 32-liter cooking pots used in schools. The eco-Magic Box is a well insulated box which cooks beans, meat and rice in 32-liter pots without fire. It cooks food with the heat that is retained in the pot. When used together in the preparation of food for large numbers of school children, big savings in money and time are achieved.>
The benefits from using the large eco-KALAN-C and eco-Magic Box in the schools' Free Noon Meal Program are impressive;>
The experience at Macario Espaňola Memorial Elementary School (MES) in Canla-on indicates a potential firewood cost savings to parents of over P257,000 pesos per school year. MES has 1,855 students in 44 classes and an average class size of 42 students. In the province of Negros Oriental alone, the value of firewood that would be saved by using the eco-KALAN-C and the eco-Magic Box is over P20 million pesos per school year.
