The mayor of Arayat town in Pampanga and his wife have started a community pantry called “Arayat Community Express” in the municipality to help their constituents struggling during the pandemic.

The project was started by the mayor of Arayat Emmanuel Alejandrino and his wife Madeth, according to a report from Sun Star Pampanga.

The report quoted Madeth, also executive assistant to Pampanga governor Dennis Pineda, as saying that nearly 10,000 families had received food packages on their initiative.

Each pack contains five kilos of rice, noodles, canned food, face masks, face shields, and alcohol.

“We have another chance at life after recovering from Covid-19, so we vowed to dedicate this new life to public service,” Madeth said in the report.

“We encourage people to stay at home but if we follow the system used by community pantries today, they will be forced to go out and even mingle with other people to get their goods, so we decided to do the traditional distribution method, ”she was quoted as saying.
