Mayor Jose Jono Jumamoy said the money to buy the commodities came from the P250,000 that came with the plaque that President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo awarded the town in November last year in Manila for bagging the National Nutrition Award as well as the counterpart that the local government unit (LGU) put up.
Municipal Health Officer Mae Lilibeth Melicor, all Sangguniang Bayan (SB) members and the LGU staff were on hand to assist in the distribution of rice, sugar, milk, cacao-chocolate as well as vitamins and seeds especially to malnourished children in primary schools.
Jumamoy said it was his pride that through the collective efforts of all Inabangnons, "we have gone this far."
"We have now shared the fruits of our efforts especially with our undernourished children. These may just be 'small things' but these are of great help to them," he said. - Sunday Post
