RIZAL, Kalinga – Determined to address malnutrition and poverty in this municipality, the Local Government Unit   under the leadership of Mayor Marcelo Dela Cruz, Jr. has  expanded  its  Gulayan sa Barangay and feeding program.

Provincial Nutritionist Frances Sebastian said that after seeing the success of the Gulayan sa Calaocan program, the LGU  willing supported the expansion of the project in Barangays Liwan West and San Pascual.  

Introduced by the Helen Keller International (HKI), the Gulayan sa Calaocan, Tugon sa Kalusugan program is a  homestead vegetable garden project designed  not only to put quality food on the table but also provides households the opportunity to save since they will not be buying from the market but instead earn by selling their products. This covered 50 families in Calaocan Barangay.

While undertaking the homestead garden project, Sebastian said that the under six children of the beneficiaries were also provided supplemental feeding to address their poor physical condition.

Aside from the Gulayan sa Barangay beneficiaries of Liwan West and San Pascual, Sebastian said that feeding program is also being implemented in the barangays of Santor, San Francisco and Macutay of Rizal. These barangays she said have high cases of malnourishment among children.

According to Sebastian, both programs are being monitored closely by the Provincial Health Office (PHO) for possible adoption in other parts of the province where malnutrition and poverty is prevalent.

To sustain the program, she said that the support and cooperation among the people and officials play a vital role especially in monitoring and provision of logistics to ensure continuity of their projects.

She said that BLGU’s concern allotted P10,000.00 to augment the fundamental ingredients for their feeding program that benefitted at least 35 children from Macutay, 42 in San Francisco, 38 from Santor, 35 from Liwan West and 15 from San Pascual of Rizal, Kalinga. **ggdumallig/PIA-Kalinga
