Mayor Vico Sotto is set to help out those who are in dire need of food especially those who are unable to work in this time of enhanced community quarantine due to the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

The Pasig City mayor announced via Facebook that they are already preparing the purchase of 400,000 food packs to help those in need.

According to the receipt shared, the food pack will contain 3 kgs of well-milled rice in a sealed plastic bag, 2 cans of sardines, 2 cans of corned tuna, 2 cans of corned beef, and 2 cans meatloaf.

Mayor Sotto wrote:

Sa kasalukuyan ay inihahanda na namin ang Purchase Request para sa 400,000 food packs.

Hindi magiging madali ang logistics nito. Wala na po tayong panahon para mag-organisa katulad nung pamaskong handog. Hihingi ang lungsod ng tulong sa mga pamahalaan pambarangay para sa distribusyon.

Tulong po ito ng lokal na pamahalaan sa mga nangangailangan, lalo na’t maraming di nakakapagtrabaho ngayong #communityQuarantine. Magtulungan po tayo at sumunod sa quarantine para mas mabilis din nating malagpasan ito.

(Per pack: 397 pesos maximum
Total: 158M pesos max.
Mode: emergency procurement
Expected delivery: end of this week)
