Tulungan! Agrarian reform beneficiaries supply produce to jails, hospitals amid COVID


Beneficiaries of agrarian reform organizations (ARBOs) in the Ilocos Region are supplying their produce to the vulnerable sector of the society including jails and hospitals.

In a report by the LGU’s agrarian reform program officer, this partnership is mutually beneficial for both farmers and these institutions under the Enhanced Partnership Against Hunger and Poverty (EPAHP) project.

Department of Agrarian Reform-Region 1 program officer Nenita Madriaga also said in an interview that DAR linked the ARBOs to the institutional market requiring supplemental feeding as part of their role in the EPAHP program. She added that 10 ARBOs or 129 farmer-agrarian reform beneficiaries have already earned almost PHP4.2 million from January to April 25 this year.
