The local government of Cantilan in Surigao del Sur has begun the distribution of food packs for at least 10,487 households.
“I am reminding everyone that the food packs will be delivered to every household,” Cantilan town Mayor Carla Lopez-Pichay said in an announcement.
Pichay said the local government is targeting 10,487 families to receive the food packs.
“The distribution to every household in all of the town’s 17 barangays aims to protect the residents from the threat of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19),” the lady mayor said.
“These will be delivered directly to their homes.”
“There is no need for the residents to go to the barangay office to get the food packs. These will be delivered directly to their homes,” she stressed.
“Each food pack contains five kilos of rice, assorted canned goods, sachets of cereals, coffee, milk, and pouches of noodles.”
Cantilan municipal administrator Vincent Dueñas explained that each food pack contains five kilos of rice, assorted canned goods, sachets of cereals, coffee, milk, and pouches of noodles.
Dueñas said the distribution will start in Barangays Bugsukan, Tapi, and Palasao, involving 765 families, and will continue until Dec. 23.
He said the distribution of food packs is part of the local government’s “Pamaskong Handog 2020” to its residents.
