‘Walang Gutom 2027: Food Stamp Program launched in GenSan

General Santos City Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao has thanked Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Secretary Rex Gatchalian for extending the national government’s Food Stamp Program in the city.

Pacquiao joined Gatchalian during the kick-off activity for the Walang Gutom Information Caravan, held at the Greenleaf Hotel.

“Ang Caravan na ito ay magbibigay ng programa at serbisyong makakatulong sa pag-angat ng buhay ng bawat isa. Salamat sa buong suporta ng DSWD sa mga pangangailangan ng bawat lugar para mabago ang buhay ng bawat bata sa ating lungsod,” Pacquiao said.

“Salamat, Secretary Rex Gatchalian at sa buong kagawaran ng DSWD sa kanilang walang sawang pagsisikap na maipatupad ang programang ito,” she added.

The “Walang Gutom 2027: Food Stamp Program” is one of the major programs of the DSWD, which aims to decrease the incidence of voluntary hunger experienced by low-income households by providing monetary-based assistance through Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) cards that can be used in purchasing select food commodities from eligible partner merchant stores.
