Personnel of the Makati Action Center (MAC) started the distribution of food packs for public school students in barangays La Paz and San Antonio.

Mayor Abby Binay earlier announced that the food packs would be delivered next week to where the students live so they need not go out of their homes.

“I have ordered our city personnel and Department of Education-Makati to fasttrack the distribution of the food packs to give immediate relief to our students and their families,” Binay said.

The mayor reiterated her appeal to the residents, including students, to remain in their homes as the city government continues to find ways to help them get by while the enhanced community quarantine is in effect.

“We are doing everything possible to help our residents cope with the crisis. We are already putting in place various forms of assistance for the other sectors of the community. I urge everyone to be patient and to cooperate by staying home,” Mayor Abby said.

Some 81,995 food packs have been allocated for public school students in Makati from preschool to senior high school. SPED learners are also included among the recipients.

The mayor said 44,951 elementary students from Kinder to Grade 6 and 37,044 high school students from Grade 7 to Grade 12 will receive the food packs.

Each elementary student will receive a bag containing two packs of raisins, five single packs of instant oatmeal, one slab of cheese, one box of hotcake mix, one box of arroz caldo mix, two boxes of champorado mix, one pack of full cream milk, 12 packs of tonic food drink, two single packs of choco cereals, two packs of biscuits, two packs of chocolate flakes cereals, a 10-piece pack each of crackers and stick biscuits, a 10-piece pack of choco bite-size biscuits, and an 18-piece pack of assorted fruit-flavored jelly.

Meanwhile, high school students will be given six packs of instant oatmeal, a slab of cheese, one box each of hotcake mix and arroz caldo mix, two boxes of champorado, a pack of full cream milk, 12 single packs of tonic food drink, 10 single packs of crackers, eight packs of instant pancit canton, and a small can each of pineapple tidbits and pineapple juice.

The city on Monday started implementing a curfew policy from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. as part of its safety measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
