SORSOGON CITY – A humanitarian activity started by Anna Patricia Non known as Maginhawa Community Pantry at Maginhawa Street in Quezon City has become a byword for lowly people direly in need of a daily food that for worse of reasons authorities took it as a communist front perhaps an admission that a simple solution is a government problem.

Now, a civic club here set up a community pantry which will initially run for one week intended for the severely affected residents of the city for losing their source of income resulting from the restraint of the pandemic. They are calling for generous donors to continue the simple initiative of sharing.

It is indeed never too late to share as proof by the Rotary Club Metro Sorsogon and the Rotaract Club of Metro Sorsogon when it set up the pantry at the Postal Bank open area along Rizal St. Extension making it accessible to those who are in need.

The group will not experience the red-tagging that Patricio and her volunteers undergone after the pronouncement and backpedaling of authorities on their legitimate and honest intent to help needy people neither they will be subject to profiling as done by Lt. Gen. Parlade mouthpiece of National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict or that of DILG Usec Martin Dino that they need to secure a business permit to operate.

Relative to the issue of Community Pantry if it is not set-up in a private property it should not impede the free flow of traffic and make sure that litters of garbage are properly handled. #Kumuha batay sa Pangangailanganan Magbigay ayon sa Kakayahan. I BicolExpress.News
