71 LGUs receive food packs from DSWD 7

THE Department of Social Welfare and Development-Central Visayas (DSWD 7) has distributed 99,256 family food packs to 71 local government units (LGUs).

The family foods packs are worth P39,100,378.78.

These goods were given to students and workers who were displaced by the crisis brought about by the coronavirus disease pandemic.

Each food pack contains six kilos of rices, four cans of sardines, four cans of processed meat and six sachets of instant coffee.

The food pack is estimated to last a family of five for two days.

There are still 27,051 family food packs set for distribution.

Repacking activities in the DSWD warehouses in the provinces of Cebu, Bohol and Negrol Oriental are also ongoing.

The family food pack program is in partnership with the Philippine National Police, Philippine Coast Guard, Armed Forces of the Philippines, Bohol Island State University, the Philippine Maritime Institute through its Reserve Officer Training Corps and the Sangguniang Kabataan of the Municipality of Dauis, Bohol.

DSWD 7 also expressed gratitude for the P76,710-worth of donations they have received.

The donation includes meal packs from McDonalds, Starbucks, Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino, Jollibee and Miggab Eatery.

The IPI Foundation Inc. has also turned over alcohol, thermal scanners and masks from the Tzu Chi Foundation. (HBL, RTF)
