    The campaign aims to showcase Filipino cuisine at its finest with the help of our fellow countrymen from all over the country by sharing clips of their homemade recipes and dishes on TikTok.

    “Food is an integral part of Filipino culture, it reflects our history and our diversity. More importantly, food is what binds us together with our family, friends, and community. Whenever we travel, we travel for food, said Tourism Secretary Berna Romulo-Puyat said.

    According to the DOT, the #SarapMagingPinoy is a way to have food mapping in the Philippines. Food, as we know, is and has always been associated with travel. By associating food with culture and a specific destination, it will create compelling stories for a traveler’s journey.

    The #SarapMagingPinoy challenge is until June 15. And DOT invites everyone to participate in this challenge.

    “The DOT continuously pushes its food tourism initiatives, and it will always be open to partnering with various innovative and engaging platforms such as TikTok to constantly promote and remind our people about how special our cuisine is to our nation,” Puyat ended.
