DAR Links Arms With Other Agencies To Boost Kids’ Health In Camarines Sur

news regional pix 1 sept. 16 2015The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR), the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), teamed up with Rep. Leni Robredo, and the food handlers/caterers in Naga City through the Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (PAHP) program to feed the city’s 2,700 Day Care Center’s school children with a healthy and balanced diet.

OIC-Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARPO II) Maria R. Gracia Sales said organic vegetables grown by agrarian reform farmers will be made available for the various feeding programs of the DSWD.

“Local smallholder farmers, mostly agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) will plant or produce the organic crops needed for the feeding programs and sell them to food caterers who will, in turn, prepare the dishes for the school children,” Sales said.

PARPO II Sales added that the arrangement is important, not only because the program provides the schools with fresh vegetables, but also it conveys to children the importance of producing organic nutritious foods for healthy living.

The benefits of the PAHP program do not just end with having nutritious school meals but to stimulate the local market here to increase the income of smallholder farmers, and be less dependent on chemically grown foods from other sources,"Sales said.

Aside from Cararayan-Pacol-San Isidro in Naga City, pilot areas for the PAHP program in Camarines Sur include San Antonio, Ocampo; Del Rosario, Pili; and Bonot-Sta-Rosa, Calabanga.

PHAP is a collaborative effort of various agencies to engage poor households and work closely with the rural communities to provide essential social and economic services toward eliminating hunger and alleviating poverty in the countryside. (GCBuensalida/DAR)
