The Philippine Red Cross (PRC), the largest humanitarian organization in the country, continuously deploys its food truck and feeds 1,310 individuals as part of its COVID-19 response to the most vulnerable nationwide last September 29, 2021.
PRC deployed its food trucks to Alfonso, Central School, and Cavite and provided ready-to-eat meals to 280 medical-front liners, Brgy. Acacia, Malabon to 100 individuals, Brgy. Cambuja, Sta. Maria Laguna to 500 individuals, and Brgy. BF Homes, Paranaque to 430 individuals.
“Ang Red Cross ay mayroong 23 food trucks na operational at handang maghatid ng pagkain sa mga most vulnerable. Luto na ang pagkain, lalabas na lamang sila at kakainin ito. Layunin naming sa Red Cross ay magbigay pag-asa sa bawat mamamayan na naapektuhan ng COVID-19. Makakaasa kayo na hindi kami titigil sa pagtulong lalo na sa higit na nangangailangan,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC also deployed its food truck last September 30, 2021, in Brgy. Catmon, Malabon and Brgy. Concepcion Uno, Marikina. The food truck is one of the first responses of PRC in times of disasters, calamities, and conflicts.
However, due to the rising cases of COVID-19, which affected thousands of families, the humanitarian organization continues to deploy its food truck to feed the most vulnerable.
