Fight Breast Cancer with Mushrooms in the Go Pink Movement

It’s bigger and better a second time around.

( Fungi are invading the menus of over 50 acclaimed restaurants in Manila as the Ministry of Mushrooms readies the first anniversary of their Mushrooms Go Pink PH campaign, a month-long movement that aims to spread awareness about breast cancer. Ten percent of the profits from each specially concocted dish will go to the ICanServe Foundation.


One of the more popular types of superfoods (food promoting health benefits), mushrooms  are known to contain nutrients that strengthen the immune system such as Vitamin D, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, as well as selenium and potassium all while keeping the calorie-, fat-, and cholesterol-content low. Ministry of Mushrooms, helmed by Marco Lobregat, will provide restaurants with locally grown fresh oyster, abalone, wood-ear, and milky mushrooms to use for their dishes.


A major boost from last year’s 30 participating outlets, the over 50 restaurants are reinterpreting mushrooms in a variety of cuisines including Japanese, Filipino, Thai, Chinese, Swiss, Italian, French and more. These restaurants include:
