Pulmano said that the city government has about P135 million coming from their quick response fund for use in the city’s expenses in the purchase of vegetables like eggplants, squash, sayote, broccoli, cauliflower, green bean (sitaw), ampalaya, and onions.
He also added that aside from giving nutritious food to the city’s residents, the city government is also helping farmers from Benguet and the vegetable cooperatives in Batangas.
The LGU has also bought about 100,000 kilos of sugar.
