NFA ARMM assures sufficient rice supply for IDPs

Koronadal City (19 November) -- In compliance with one of its basic mandates of ensuring food security in staple cereals in times and places of natural or man-made calamities/emergency, the National Food Authority in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (NFA-ARMM) continues to respond to the staple cereal requirements in affected areas.

NFA-ARMM regional director Atty. Emilio Andrion, Jr. said, his office continues to release rice through the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD), Regional Disaster Coordinating Council (RDCC), local government units (LGUs), non-government organizations (NGOs) among others.

So far, Director Andrion said, as of November 10, this year, NFA-ARMM has already released some 20, 276 bags of rice to DSWD and RDCC, 133,095 to LGUs and another 36,835 for others as food assistance to the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the autonomous region and Cotabato City.

Although the armed conflict has somehow affected the rice production output of Maguindanao province, the official assures there is sufficient rice stocks for the IDPs.

Rice stocks of Maguindanao come from General Santos City and Cagayan de Oro, while that of the island provinces of Tawi-Tawi, Sulu and Basilan are from Zamboanga City, Andrion said.

The official said, our palay procurement program is very encouraging which would ensure the agency's buffer stock of rice. (pbc/PIA) [top]
