Pandesal has become a regular staple of every Filipinos usually during breakfast.

Sometimes, it’s best paired with hot coffee or with your favorite sandwich spread.

In order to celebrate this small bread’s importance, every October is World Pandesal Day.

This is the 5th year that the world is celebrating it.

The idea was conceptualized in 2015 by Wilson Lee Flores who says that while the celebration is coined as the ‘World Pandesal Day’, it’s meant to be celebrated for the entire month.

Every Oct. 16 is World Bread Day.

But Flores, who bought and revived the artesinal bakery in Barangay Kamuning, Quezon City, thought it would be best to recognize pandesal as a world-class bread in the future.

Thus, World Pandesal Day was born.

To kick it off this year, the 80-year-old Kamuning Bakery Cafe at Judge Jimenez Street corner K-1st Street, Barangay Kamuning in Quezon City has conducted free medical, dental & optical services for all people especially the urban poor of Metro Manila on Sunday morning.

The artisanal bakery will also be giving out 70,000 pandesals, bread and other food on Oct. 26, starting at 8:30 a.m. together with their branch in Caloocan City.

Since 2015, Flores has been doing this yearly.

“These unique civic & cultural projects of Kamuning Bakery are inspired by amazing Bible story of a humble boy who shared his 5 loaves of bread & 2 fishes, which Jesus Christ multiplied to feed over 5,000 men, not yet including women & children who were also fed,” Lee said in a Facebook post.

So this is Flores’ story of the pandesal.

What about yours? What is your memorable story with the pandesal?
