The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) and Christ’s Commission Fellowship (CCF) rolled out on May 25 their “Mobile Kitchen Project” to feed poor families in Quezon City amid the pandemic.

QCPD Director Police Brig. Gen. Ronnie Montejo and CCF founder Senior Pastor Peter Fu Tan-Chi led the launching of the program in Barangay Damayang Lagi.

According to Montejo, they aim to provide at least 400 hot meals and relief packs to indigent families in the barangay to help ease their situation in these difficult times.

Barangay Damayang Lagi was placed under “extreme enhanced community quarantine” (EECQ) by the Quezon City government last March. It was lifted days after.

EECQ will be enforced by the local government in barangays that have two or more COVID-19 cases from different households, or those which have one case in an urban poor area where the risk of transmission is “very high.”

“We thank CCF Senior Pastor Tan-Chi for coordinating with the QCPD Community Affairs Development Division led by Lt.Col. Christian Dela Cruz to successfully implement this project. Aside from the assistance to be provided, the program also aims to instill a sense of concern and interdependence to those who are suffering due to the pandemic,” the QCPD chief said.

Montejo added that the Mobile Kitchen Project is also in adherence to the Philippine National Police’s “Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko” program which aims to give aid to underprivileged Filipinos whose livelihoods were greatly affected by the lockdown.

Quezon City is the largest and most populous city in the country with a population of almost 3 million as of the 2015 census.

In a data from the Department of Health released by the Quezon City local government on Sunday, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the city has reached exactly 2,000 on Saturday, May 23.

Based on the same record, Barangay Culiat has the most number of active cases with 49, followed by 35 in Batasan Hills, and 32 in Pasong Tamo and Bahay Toro.

Meanwhile, the city’s death toll is now at 169, while a total of 624 individuals have recovered from the disease.
