Supplemental feeding benefits 11,000 Capiz pre-schoolers

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (27 September) -- More than 11,000 pre-school children in Capiz are benefiting from the government's supplemental feeding program.

Capiz Social Welfare and Development Officer Violeta Silva said that of the 10,665 pre-school children targeted from the 13 towns of the province for said program, some 11,099 children have been given supplemental feeding.

The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has released more than P10.285 million for said children enrolled in 396 day care centers from the 13 towns, Silva said.

The supplemental feeding program involves the provision of milk and hot meals for children in day care centers in 370 municipalities in 15 regions during summer vacation and regular school days, DSWD Secretary Esperanza Cabral said.

The intensive supplemental feeding program is one of the components of the Accelerated Hunger Mitigation Program of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

Aside from the national government's feeding program, the Provincial Government of Capiz is also implementing the supervised neighborhood play with feeding program that benefited more than 250 pre-school children enrolled in identified 10 day care centers here.

Malacaņang earlier disclosed that program for children remains one of the top priority agenda of the government under its hunger mitigation thrusts that include the supplemental feeding and food-for-school program (FSP), among others. (PIA) [top]
