Artist EDGARDO PALAD tandems with popular hip-hop group SUMAGUPA KREW in a noble feeding program for cdo’s street kids & beggars

In these times of PANDEMIC many of our filipino brothers & families here in Cagayan de Oro City find it hard to make both ends meet. Some are barely able to eat three square meals a day due to abject poverty.

It is with this thought in mind that videographer MACOY MAGBAGO & JIBOI VASALLO popularly known as KREGGA decided to spearhead a noble pack lunch feeding program for the street kids & beggars that proliferate the city with their hip hop SUMAGUPA KREW group.

They approached popular CDO visual artist, businessman & philanthropist EDGARDO RIVERO PALAD to help them out who, being a Chef himself, immediately agreed and volunteered to cook the pansit bam-i & chicken adobo they were planning to prepare & distribute.

CHEF IN THE HOUSE. Businessman and Artist Edgardo Rivero Palad slices the ingredients of the ‘pansit and pork adobo’ in his house before the food distribution last Saturday to the less fortunate people..


These effort was picked up by JAI MONDEZ of PTV MINDANAO based in Davao City and came out as featured news in their news program.

in the interview that ensued artist EDGARDO RIVERO PALAD  explained his participation “ I was amazed that this group composed of “brusko” looking young men had a very soft spot for the poor and needy. How can I say no to that. Besides, it always feels good to help those in need even without being asked. I just want to share GOD’s generosity & blessings to others by paying it forward hoping that by our humble example other persons & groups with big hearts & pockets would pick it up and do their share in helping those in dire need of our much needed assistance especially in these very uncertain times”.

The SUMAGUPA KREW group could not agree more. MACOY MAGBAGO and JBOI VASALLO adds “ Our shows and gigs are all in a standstill due to this pandemic. So we thought of doing something positive, productive & helpful rather than just remain idle.  As we go around the city, we see a lot of homeless street kids & hapless beggars who are unable to feed themselves. They need help. So the group decided to focus on them”.

These program will not be a one shot deal for both EDGARDO PALAD, MACOY MAGBAGO & JBOI VASALLO & the SUMAGUPA KREW.  They plan to keep doing this as long as there are kids & beggars out there in the streets crying out for help. As the saying goes “Bahala na si BATMAN sa amin”.
