Kadiwa stores roll out in Manila
Manila will roll out farm-to-market rolling stores in various barangays to make fresh produce available to citizens amid the COVID-19 crisis.
The “Kadiwa Rolling Store” project will be launched on Monday, April 6, at Lambingan Ferry Station in front of Thomas Earnshaw Elementary School, within the area of Barangays 896 and 897.
It will also be launched on the same day at J. Posadas Street near Road 2, Punta, Sta. Ana, within the areas of Barangays 903 and 905.
These stores will open at 7:00 am.
Among the private firms that will be participating in these mobile markets is Vitarich, which will offer dressed chicken products to the public.
Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso said this will be a relaunch of the “Kadiwa Rolling Store” project as it has already been launched in Tondo and Sampaloc in October last year.
The city government, in partnership with the Department of Agriculture (DA), launched the project initially at Manila City Hall. The government then deployed the mobile stores in various areas in Tondo and Sampaloc following the success of its initial launch.
Domagoso said the project aims to connect farmers directly to consumers without the need for a middle man.
This means farm products will be offered to consumers at very low prices, the Mayor said.
