CAMP AGUINALDO, Quezon City – The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) utilizes again its Mobile Kitchen to provide hot meals to homeless and street dwellers on its second location in Barangay Corazon de Jesus, San Juan City for two days until April 26, 2020.
The activity is under the “Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko” Campaign that is implemented by the Civil Relations Service AFP in support of the overall government effort to assist citizens during the Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon.
This came after the successful distribution of meals to around 3,000 disadvantaged individuals and families on its pilot project site in Purok 1, 2 and 3, of Barangay Tatalon, Quezon City last April 20.
The two mobile kitchen trucks tagged as “Vessels of Blessings” are deployed with culinary trained soldiers and support personnel onboard to prepare and distribute the meals to designated drop-off points respectively.
The AFP will also be providing meals to the stranded workers or students receiving little or no support, informal settlers and families in depressed communities. The provision of meals through the AFP Mobile Kitchen complies with ECQ protocols that limit civilian movements and activities outside their residences.
The deployment of the mobile kitchen shows the continuous commitment of the AFP to protect the welfare of every Filipino as we face an unconventional enemy, the COVID19.
