QC Gov’t to Distribute 400k Food Packs Weekly During Lockdown Period

The Quezon City government will distribute 400,000 food packs, which are good for two million people, per week for the month-long duration of the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon due to COVID-19, Mayor Joy Belmonte said. 

According to Belmonte, each food pack will serve a family which has roughly five members in all of Quezon City’s 142 barangays. 

She thanked the local government unit’s staff “who will need to work 24/7 for the next three weeks in order for the city government to be able to repack and distribute 400,000 food packs each week…until the end of the quarantine period.” 

Belmonte explained that the distribution took a little while since the suppliers were overwhelmed with the volume of the Quezon City government’s orders and could not comply immediately, even if the city government placed its order the day after President Rodrigo Duterte placed the entire Luzon under enhanced quarantine.
