HON. EDUARDO M. AÑO
Secretary of the Interior and Local Government

I have not ordered the PNP to look into the community pantries around the country. The community pantry has been a traditional practice in our country as part of Bayanihan culture and spirit specially in the times of calamities and disasters. Iba iba lang ang pangalan: community pantry, food bank, soup kitchen, kapitbahayan and ayuda, among others. In the spirit of Bayanihan, many Filipinos have been doing selfless acts of kindness since last year.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and all local government units (LGUs) are slated to inspect all public buildings, markets, and commercial establishments to check their compliance to Minimum Public Health Standards (MPHS) and use of StaySafe.ph application under the new program called Safety Seal certification.
