Maxicare hosts first-ever Veggie Festival



Maxicare Healthcare Corporation — the country’s leading healthcare provider — arranged its first-ever outdoor festival dubbed “Maxicare Veggie Fest 2019,” which aims to provide choices of eating healthy and battling obesity.

The project — which is supported by company chairman of the Board Roberto “Bobby” Macasaet Jr. — is an advocacy with the goal of providing healthier lifestyles for Filipinos at a time when obesity and unhealthy lifestyles continue to grow into a global problem.

“One of the easiest ways to start your journey to living a healthy life is by eating a plant-based diet, which is why we are very proud to be holding the Maxicare Veggie Fest. Today, we invite everyone to live their best by boosting not only their physical, but also their mental health. It’s like eating your favorites, but without the guilt,” said Macasaet, whose main objective is to improve health and wellness, focusing on plant-based nutrition.

In its mission to improve others’ quality of life, Maxicare also encourages members and non-members alike to incorporate a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains and starches, good fats and lean proteins into their diet so they can live longer and feel stronger by inspiring others to fight disease and eat healthy.

Held at the Legaspi Active Park in Makati City, the veggie fest was packed with plant-based food vendors that offered handpicked products for health-conscious consumers.
