      The aim of this program is to provide additional nutrition for underaged children who come from lower middle economy class and to protect them from malnutrition. Children is our next generation and they have to be health in order to grow and develop properly to be worthwhile for themselves and others.

      With this same aim, InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza has chosen to cooperate with Yayasan Wadah Titian Harapan. It is a non-profit organization that have vision "Empowerment, education, and enterprise development for all." The cooperation has been run for almost one year, started with the GRACE project during festive season in December 2013. For the supplementary food distribution, we have held it for three times in three different community areas: Klender, Kampung Beting and Warabal, Parung. The program is held regularly, every 2 to 3 months.

      For the 4th Supplementary Food Distribution will be slightly different with the presence of special guest clown from The Global Clowning Foundation. It is a non-governmental organization from Netherlands since 2012. Global Clowning clowns are clowning in the countries where there are little or no local clowns available, while there are lots of children who need some laughter and lightness. Through local contacts and organizations clowns clown at school, orphanages, prisons for children, hospitals, institutions for disabled children, they aim to bring some joy and laughter to these children.

      The program will be held in PAUD Penjaringan. PAUD (Pendidikan Anak Usia Dini) is similiar with informal kindergarten school, there are around of 120 children (3 - 6 years old). The event will be started with the introduction of the hotel representatives and the guest clown and continue with the regular school activities involving all the participants in assisting the children. There will be fun games for the children and entertainment provided by Global Clowing. Last but not least, all participants from InterContinental Jakarta MidPlaza, Yayasan Wadah Titian Harapan and Global Clowning distribute the mung bean porridge, bread and milk together.
