Dagupan City receives 780 bags of rice to boost feeding program

Feb 10, 2018

DAGUPAN CITY – More than 2,000 children will benefit from the 780 bags of rice that were distributed Wednesday to the city’s  46 daycare center by the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).
This is in line with the DSWD’s Supplementary Feeding Program (SFP), a nationwide project that aims to address the issue of malnutrition in the country.
The feeding program using the staple and other nutritious food will be conducted for 120 days benefiting children enrolled in these daycare centers.
Catherine P. Gonzales, president of the Association   of Child Development Workers of Dagupan said the children aged three to four will be given “hot meals”. She said in the past 120-day feeding program, she saw children gain weight.
“[Dito] sa Supplementary Feeding, ay pakakainin ang mga bata ng hot meals. Talagang makakatulong ito kasi nagwe-weigh kami bago pakainin ang bata. After three months, nakikita talaga namin na tumataas ang timbang nila,” Gonzales said.
Daycare Worker I Maria Angela Aquino of the City Social Welfare and Development (CSWD) said that DSWD distributes rice to daycare centers   once every six months.
The SFP is part of the Early Childhood Care and Development (ECCD) project of the national government.
According to Republic Act No. 10410 or the Early Years Act (EYA) of 2013, one of the objectives of the National ECCD System is “to achieve improved infant and child survival rates by ensuring that adequate health and nutrition programs are accessible to young children”.
