With the availability of food supply as important as battling the COVID-19 crisis, DA executive in Region 10 Carlene C. Collado checks the situation on the ground to ensure that cargo trucks containing food supplies and production items are gaining easier access in the quarantine checkpoints of Damulog, Malaybalay City, Don Carlos and Lantapan, Bukidnon through the issued foodlane passes.

This is one among the region’s response on the directives of DA Sec. William D. Dar in addressing priority key areas amid the pandemic such as mobilizing food and production supplies from production to market areas; reviewing the food availability and affordability per province and addressing those with deficits; and strengthening the coordination between the agency and local governments in the implementation of the foodlane.#
