So very cool. Thanks to everybody that helped. I wonder if people would want to donate to keep this going? I would throw some money at it…

Honestly, I thought the story would be more like: We sent them a bunch of powder and they said “what’s this crap?” Luckily it went the other way. I know how much soylent (decent nutrition) has helped reasonably healthy people. I wonder what it would do to starving malnutritioned children.

Let me thank Hank for opportunity to make this happen and all the backers who financed the ingredients. Thank you guys!

@JeffLeBert - I also think that we can keep this going on a regular basis.
Once we have a lot of places (not only Philippines) to help - may be we’d better start something like a “powdered foods bank”?

If you haven’t seen this is actually going right now! Go to https://www.tilt.com/campaigns/lets-send-more-powdered-food-to-philippine and donate.It looks like I might have been the second to donate. :slight_smile:

Thanks @JeffLeBert,
let me post a link to the blog in addition to campaign.
It will remind about the roots: http://www.powderedfoods.com/blog/powedered-food-bank/

I have benefited greatly from the whole soylent idea, and have a big debt to pay forward. I’d love to see the pictures when the kids get the new shipment, if anyone happens to take any.

Just got a video from the Mangyans - the tribal group that drinks the food we sent them:

I should say that’s the largest part of that belongs to Henri Pellissier, we just provide a backend.
