Chito and Neri Miranda on local rice – wag na po tayong tumawad
Celebrity and restaurateur Neri Miranda and her hubby, Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda are using their voices to support local farmers.
On her Facebook page, Neri asked fans to patronize local goods over imported rice to help farmers recover from their losses this past harvest. She also urged those who have information on how to purchase directly from farmers to leave the contacts on the thread so more people will know how and where to make the purchase. Finally, she called on consumers to stop haggling on the price for local rice because it is the farmers’ only source of livelihood.
“Bilhin ang bigas ng Pinas. Napakalaking tulong para sa ating mga magsasaka kapag tangkilikin natin ang lokal na bigas,” Neri said.
