ANGELES City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr., ordered the preparation of an additional 100,000 food packs to be distributed to indigent Angeleños.
The additional food packs are the third series of distribution following the already distributed 70,705 food packs at the 33 barangays in the city.
Lazatin said the distribution of food packs will be a “continuous process,” aiming to address the needs of his constituents until the end of the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).
“Being faced with the community quarantine, we want to provide consistently to our people, making sure no one suffers from hunger,” Lazatin said.
Lazatin added that indigent families were prioritized in the distribution although the city’s ultimate goal is to provide every Angeleño household with food packs.
Each food assistance contains four kilos of rice and 10 canned goods, which is good for a family of five persons for four days.
Lazatin’s chief adviser and tactician director IC Calaguas is personally supervising the preparation together with Executive Assistant Reina Manuel, City Engineer Donato Dizon, City Social Welfare and Development Officer Joy Duaso, and other city employees in charge of repacking the food packs.
