Cash and Food Subsidy for Marginal Farmers and Fisherfolk

MAITUM, Sarangani (April 26, 2021) - Beneficiaries help each other carry a sack of rice during the distribution of cash assistance and food subsidy to marginal farmers and fisherfolk at the Municipal Gymnasium on April 21. The activity which was in line with the implementation of Cash and Food Subsidy for Marginal Farmers and Fisherfolk, was facilitated by the Department of Agriculture through the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources XII in partnership with the Municipal Environmental and Natural Resources Office. The said program of the government aims to help alleviate the welfare of farmers and fishers who were severely affected by Covid-19. Almost 350 eligible beneficiaries who are enrolled in the Registry System for Basic Sectors in Agriculture each received a sack of rice and cash (P3,000). The scheme does not only provide farmers support but also ensures the income of rice farmers who have been affected by the pandemic. (John James I. Doctor- Joylyn B.
