Former Senator Loren Legarda is promoting healthy food even in community pantries.

The congresswoman from Antique this time bought tons of kalabasa or squash and gave them away to food pantries in her home province. The vegetables were bought from local farmers to help boost their income during the pandemic.

In an Instagram post, Legarda said her office has delivered the first two tons of squash to community pantries in the towns of San Jose, Hamtic, and Sibalom.

The remaining two tons of squash went to various organizations on Labor Day.

Among the kalabasa recipients are Angel Salazar Memorial Hospital in San Jose; Ramon Maza Memorial Hospital in Sibalom; Antique Medical Center; Catholic Bishop’s House; Iglesia ni Cristo; Aglipayan Church; Pagsapupo Center; St. Joseph Orphanage; St. Peter’s Seminary; Mensa Domini Chapel; Poor Clare Monastery; and the Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, all in San Jose.

Legarda urged people planing to donate in community pantries to buy produce from local farmers. Products could also be purchased from small businesses to support their livelihood.

“Let us all empower our fellow Filipinos especially the most vulnerable,” she said.

“Our sense of bayanihan and volunteerism makes us Filipinos and I hope we continue to strongly demonstrate this amidst the pandemic. #indayloren #foodforall #pagkaonparasatanan,” she said.
