This is how Mayor Vico ensures Pasigueños won’t go hungry during community quarantine
Metro Manila mayors are all doing their part for the smooth implementation of the enhanced Luzon wide Community Quarantine ordered by President Duterte. However, it seems that Pasig Mayor is ahead of the pack in preparing for this eventuality.
His locality recently passed an ordinance on Anti Panic Buying and Hoarding to ensure that everyone will get a fair chance to restock heir food supplies.

Mayor Vico also assured that the city is prepared to distribute 400,000 food packs to augment the needs of the locals. To boost the health of Pasig residents, vitamins will also be distributed.
Sa kasalukuyan ay inihahanda na namin ang Purchase Request para sa 400,000 food packs.
Hindi magiging madali ang logistics nito. Hihingi ang lungsod ng tulong sa mga pamahalaan pambarangay para sa distribusyon.
