Food for Free

Walking through the streets of Manila is a realization of how life goes for the upper class society and how the low class society like us struggle for everyday living. As the moon witness the city lights, I patiently and courageously search here for the prize of the night. My stomach crumbles as I look and daydreams or should I say night dreams linger as foods float in the air surrounding me. You may wonder what prize I’m talking about, a prize that my tomorrow depends, my family awaits and my community’s hope for surviving. My prize? Leftover foods from restaurants which I scavenge from garbage sites and dumps, we also call – Pagpag.

In Tagalog, Pagpag is the act of brushing your clothes to sweep off dusts in your clothing but for us, its chicken pulled off the trash and a way for us to survive our daily lives.

After filling my bucket with different kind of leftover foods such as half eaten patties and fried chickens. My stomach turns upside down as sour smell of the food or should i say leftover food I collected sooth the air I breathe. I need to resist this, yes, I should, for my siblings who wait for my return.

Miles from the dumpsite I scavenge, is a community suffering in hell. Innocent children are still awake, wearing tattered shirts, who try to get some pagpag from the bucket i carry. I gave them each one, just to calm the urge of their dying stomach. More turnovers and i am now here in our humble home covered by plywood and tarpaulins which reveal the faces of dumbass politicians i never knew have existed.

My 7 younger siblings hugged me as I enter, my pregnant mom was on a rest while my dad is not still on home. Empty plates surround our small table as one of my brothers holds his tummy, on grief because of hunger. I then went  to our kitchen, bit by bit cleaned the pagpag to ensure the safety of my family. Washed it with water thoroughly, removed every dirt, washed it again and cooked it with soy sauce, vinegar and bit of salt and other spices.

There you go, I have finished cooking our delicacy of the night, Adobong Pagpag.

My siblings wait as I fill their plates adobong pagpag and a bit of rice, I saw their smiles, enough to make my sweat worth it. Like a lion hungry for food, they ferociously ate the food in their plate, a reason for me to force them to stop. They all know the reason why I held them in anticipation.

We all had our sign of the cross and within our hearts, said in chorus ‘Oh lord God, thank you for the food in front us.’

For the reader of this, Do not waste food, be grateful for what you have, because someone out there was struggling just to have what you had.

Many people don’t realize how bless they are, they complain about the kind of life they have even they are blessed enough to have those kind of luxuries.They don’t even think that they are blessed enough to eat 3 times a day without scavenging food enable to eat.I support this advocacy because it brighten up every mind of people who always complain on what they have.This advocacy give us a message that in every gift or things you receive or you have you must be thankful . This advocacy remind us that we must always thank God for everything he given to us even thou it is a small things.And we must also share our blessing to our neighbor,God died for us, in return we must love each other. Then reflect in Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”

1. Why do you think this advocacy needed in society?
This advocacy is needed in our society today because it has been one of the reasons why most of poor families is suffering from hunger. From an individual who did not able to finish his/her studies which leads to unemployment until having his/her own family, cannot provide the essential needs like secured home, clothes to wear, and food to eat. Each individual should eat atleast three times a day to gain energy and avoid illness. That is why this advocacy “food for free” should be implemented for families who really do not have the capability to eat for three times each day. Also, this advocacy would help to lessen their expenses; but ofcourse the government should monitor it in a way that they can also provide some seminars on how they will earn money in which later on, those families can able to buy their own meals.

2. Why would Rizal support the chosen advocacy?
For me, I think that Rizal can support this advocacy because this has been the common issues in our society – poor families who does not eat three times a day. Like what I said, due to unemployment, a family cannot buy their needs particularly the food in which everyone needs it because their money is not enough. Rizal is kind and also a family-centered man in which he studied Opthalmologist in Spain and help his mother who suffers from illness. In relation to that, I think he would support this advocacy to help other individuals. And I believe through this, it will benefit families and address major concern of society.

What is the first importance of this social movement in the society?

First of all the importance of social movements whereas, uncertain life. like what I’ve read a while ago about the street children and a broken families who’s living in the street my realization is how lucky I am because of the blessings that Lord gave to me unlike the children who’s suffered in their life in the low class society, who doesn’t have their own home who cannot survive in their own lives and they can’t eat atleast 3 times a day, now you’ve facing the reality of life that the importance of living like what I’ve saw don’t waste foods because someone is struggling just to eat.

Why is this advocacy important to change the society?
Because this advocacy that I’ve read is all about the street children, who cannot provide their own foods, a secured home to live, so for me We need to change this kind of society because of this people that the major concern of this society so need to focus to this advocacy to lessen their responsibilities so be responsible. 🙂

What is the first importance of social movement in the society?

Thrives on the ability of the progressive community to capitalizes on political opportunuties.To capitalize on political opportunities. Translate such opportunities to social change.Striving to work a common goal.Attempting to create change.
Focuses on the creation and reproduction of inequality.Secure the rights of everybody.Adapting to communication technology trend.They carry out,resists,or undo a social change.Utilize technology and the internet to mobilize people globally.

Food is very important.We can’t live without food.We will get sick if we didn’t eat anything.We need food to live and grow.It give us energy.
There’s a lot of people seeking to find food because they don’t have a power to buy it.This advocacy helps people that if they will buy a food it should be enough for them.If they buy a lot of food make sure that they didn’t throw it,they should give the food to the people who deserves and need the food.Buy food but make sure that you will eat of them cause if your throw,you didn’t know the real meaning of importance.

1.) This advocacy is about the main problem in our society which is poverty. The aim of this advocacy is to open our eyes in a more realistic manner. An eye opener for us to know the real status of a community wherein they don’t have enough money to eat for at least three times a day. Some people tend to steal money in order to fill their empty stomach, some are making a way by collecting waste food from fastfoods.

2.) This advocacy is important because it made us realize that we should be grateful on what we have rather than thinking on how to get what we want. We should be thankful that we are lucky enough to eat three times a day while some people strive hard just to find food. And never ever waste food because it’s like wasting the blessings of our Lord.

I will support the advocacy entitled “food for free” because as we can see the environment nowadays, most of the percentage are counted by the hunger and poor people. The advocacy shows the real happenings in our society that needs more attention and action to solve the crisis that we face. We as a student ,we can do an action by giving them even a little help by sharing our blessings to give some foods, clothes and things that they can use to fight the challenges of their everyday life.
This advocacy reminds us to be contented of what we have and be thankful for the blessings. The blessings that we can eat three times a day, we have money to spend for our desires and house for our security. And be thankful for everything because you have no idea how many people would love you’ve got. This advocacy left a lesson for the readers to not wasting food because there are many people who suffering for hunger. Wasting food is just like stealing for poor people because it will be there life to survive. A lesson of helping others with a heart and give without a replacement is the best way of sharing because the best feeling of happiness is when you’re happy because you’ve made somebody else happy.

This kind of advocacy is highly needed in our society predominantly to affect social change. Through posting articles that particularly talks about different advocates like this one can already create a huge impact to each and everyone regarding different issues and problems of the society. Since there are exceptionally large number of active users of social media every day, this advocacy will probably be given at least a glimpse by the “netizens” as well. I believe that advocates like this encourages everyone who cares about the issues of hunger and food justice of society can make necessary actions that will help our fellowmen especially the youth, have an ensure access to enough healthy and fresh food for daily basis. Lastly, through this advocacy, every Filipino can have a better outlook in life on how important it is to value what they have for others may not be able to obtain such blessings.

If Jose Rizal were alive today, I think he would definitely support this advocacy first, since he practices medicine and pursued scientific studies, it was noted that during his exile in Dapitan, he had many patients, but most of them were poor so that he even game them free medicine. In this case, if he will see how hunger and poverty pains his countrymen, he will definitely offer free food to them just like his old ways during his exile. Lastly, as he once said, the youth is “bella esperanza de la Patria mia” or “fair hope of my fatherland” wherein he has a firm conviction that the youth can do great things in improving the country’s future. But how can the Filipino youth stand firm with this conviction if they were not able to eat properly and healthy in a daily basis? That’s why if there were advocates like this that greatly affect the youth, rest assured that the National Hero will support it for he believe that the Filipino youth are the associates of the society, their idealism, their burning passion and their commitment in serving their fellowmen are the armors that will further uplift the lives of every people living in the society.

In this modern era I must say that food is necessary. This advocacy enlightens us to be thankful for what we have. For fortunate family we are blessed that we don’t experience hunger or sickness because we have our basic necessities. Let’s not waste the blessings that we receive everyday because some of us badly need it. Unfortunate people struggle everyday to survive and make a living, there’s no assurance on what will happen to their lives without food. So treasure what we have right now because we don’t know what the future will bring to us.

Indeed Jose Rizal will surely support this advocacy. He knew and felt what his countrymen suffered before. I guess if he’s still alive he will make way to help those needy people. He definitely knows what are the remedies or solutions on how solve this kind of issue. Giving his best to address the concern of his countrymen is necessary since he’s a type of person that is brilliant and good in giving suggestions

A poverty trap can cause severe lack of food. People living in poverty can’t afford nutritious food for themselves and to their families. The importance of advocacy “Food for free” in society, it promotes awareness for us to know the value of everyday foods. Food can supply as the fundamental method to feed by maintaining our natural body. Hunger affects the energy to focus, learn, grow, and ultimately succeed, that’s why that advocacy exist to restore humanities. People are people, if we give there’s a lot of encouragements affectionally to those who receive. It promotes also about saving our lives not just you’re helpful because of the short term event. Advocacy is habit that we need to apply, it is everyday. Let’s open our mind, our heart, just always willing to give so it ends up goodness for our society.

Rizal would support this advocacy since he does not want to see filipino people in the state wherein they don’t have food on their table to eat. Rizal would not want this to happen in today’s generation and if doing so, such action like this advocacy, I think he would also like to atleast sustain free food for each of the filipinos who suffers from great hunger everyday.

Isis Castillo

This social movement- food for free- gives answer to the government’s 10-year problem. The food for free movement, if passed and implied, would play a huge change to the society. It is important that the street people, especially the street children should be given food for free. For the children in this generation would carry the responsibilities of being a leader in the generation to come that includes our children and grandchildren’s generation. It is important that we give heed to the people around our society for a society is considered as one.

Change comes from the people of the society. Without the society nourishing its people, the change that everyone is pleading for will never come. The food for free movement will enable the society to reach and achieve the success that each one is wanting. A “small” movement yet great effect for everyone! Isn’t it that everything starts from a little and small step?

What is the importance of social movement in the society?

A social movement is a group of organization that focuses on a specific social issue, which means they try to resolve social issues in their own way, they doesn’t depend on the actions of the government. Makes me realize that social movement is important in society. Social movement can change life of others either it is small or big, thus they can resolve problems in the society little by little, come to think of it. If there are many social movements on the society, the higher probability that society can transform to its finest. So as a student, you can do small social movement in your own ways, like sharing foods if you have plenty of it or not wasting food because there are many families that can’t afford to buy their own food.

Why is it important to change the society?

Through this advocacy I realize that there must a big change in the society. Eating pagpag, not all people can afford to eat pagpag, but to those people that belong in a low class society they endure to eat just to fill their aching stomach. So if there will be a change in the society, there is a probability that the next generation cannot experience, what these generations have experienced.

1. What is the importance of social movement in the society?

The importance of the social movement is they have the power to change the society. Social movement usually have to do with change rather than persistence. And they usually emerge from “under-class” group who lack meaningful access to other official means of power. They are among the “weapons of the weak” like what I have chosen “Food for Free” it about poverty. W all know that all of us have the right to depend our rights that’s why we have a social movement.

2. Why is it important to change the society?

Its is important to have a social movement to change the society because they are the group of people who will help who’s weak. They will also help anyone to have the power to depend the rights of the individuals. Without this social movement people maybe abuses by anyone specially to those people in poverty. Like what I have said awhile ago that they are the weapons of the weak. That’s why it is very important to have the social movement to change the society.

This social movement focuses on the street children or some people that has no ability, lack of money to buy their own food. “Do not waste food, be grateful for what you have, because someone out there was struggling just to have what you had.” This quote is the prove that whatever food is filed on your table, you should thank God for his blessings. And always put yourself in other people’s shoes and imagine how they feel. This social movement will serves an eye opener for the rest of the people who always wasting their food and taking it for granted.

It is important because, this advocacy can help the unfortunate people to lessen their hunger. Change is unpredictable. But if we Filipinos, help in a small way, we can get through of this all the way! Help others with a heart and give without any replacement. This is the best thing that the lucky people should have.

Honestly, the articles that I’ve just read are all on point. I love how the author/s expressed their opinions in each article.

Yes, we are very fortunate when we can eat 3 times a day or more than that. We should be thankful that we’re belong to the middle class. Nowadays, people will just ignore the foods that they don’t like while others are longing and starving for that food. I feel pity to those family esp to their children who will beg for foods everyday. But I think some of these people will beg money over than food. Money to buy foods? Foods for their family? I don’t know.

But I also believe that the role of the parents are big. Base on the article he/she has 7 siblings and his/her mother is…pregnant. There is NOTHING wrong to bear a child BUT the wrong thing is you CAN’T EVEN PROVIDE FOODS to your remaining children and still you have the guts to make another child who will also suffer from hunger!

I believe that if Rizal is still alive he will support this advocacy. It’s because he doesn’t want to see people suffering from hunger. But I also think that Rizal will not tolerate the parents to make another child just to suffer again from hunger. Maybe, Rizal will give some advice to the parents to stop making another one instead they should focus to their remaining children.

The problem of the society focused in here is that the lack of food in lower class people. This can be connected to me as a student nurse, because nurses’ like us should have the power to promote good health in the people around us, But scavenging food like a vulture in the desert is not an easy way and it cannot promote good health among the people who eat those leftovers. But how come , sometimes I see that scavenging is the only way to overcome the hunger of the small families living in depressed communities. They don’t have job , they don’t have good home , they don’t have money just look at those factors and you can conclude that this is really a big problem.

This advocacy should be supported because one major priority of the society should be the health of the people living in it. This would be a great challenge in the society but I am sure that someday , hunger can be overcome, that hunger has a solution. I hope that the solution for this should be a positive healthy one. By only not giving people free food but teaching them how to earn it. There are a lot of organizations that help to depressed communities but I also call attention to those living in the depressed communities, that they should also cooperate, not only being active when there is free food. They should be active on how to gain food. I know that there are a lot of ways to overcome it, I hope also that scavenging can be treated, it’s not healthy , it’s sick. Calling the attention also to those who wastes foods, there are a lot of people suffering because of hunger, they should know the value of food. We should help one another. This is society , we live individually but we should goal for the good of all

1. The problem in this advocacy is many filipinos has the characteristics of this “bahala na system” as we can see with our own two eyes physically both adult and teenagers now a days influenced by this environmental factors, such as lack of education deprivation with in their families, especially people coming from grass roots who in anyway has no capacity and stable job for their resources. Secondly, is this early marriage when no one has no capacity and ability to brought up a family. Next is lack of education and this is now the primary problem in our society.And most parents now a days has no capacity stable job, no time for their children to teach them the proper education on how to value life, preserve the importance and practice of family values and healthy family planning.Last but not the least is the parents now a days had forgotten to teach their children the importance of spiritual enhancement.

2. Why is it important to support that advocacy?
– Basically, it is our responsibility to support this advocacy not only for our family,friends and love ones.But also for our “KABABAYAN’S” who are in need of our warm and helping hand,our open heart and mind to make them a better person and well rounded citizen.The main reason and purpose why it is very important to us to support this advocacy are:

1.To help our “KABABAYAN’S” especially people coming from the grass roots to make their lives more comfortable and a healthy living.
2.To alleviate their family status from poverty line.
3.To help them reaching out our govt. agencies who’s objective and goal is to give them the best if not better education to enlighten their mind in the future.

4.Teaching them the importance and value to top it all the spiritual aspect in life.
5.Encouraging them to motivate the people especially the young people on how to love and respect oneself and stay away from this free radicals that are very rampant now in our society.
6.To support them boosting their morals, and teach them how to be a hardworking, dedicated and trust worthy citizen to their work.

This article reminds me when I shared my food to those people who beg for my food. I Experienced hunger and it hurts. And I believe that it is my responsibility to share at least some portions of our resources to save these dying people. Maybe we possess more resources so that we could share our privilege together and to be able to reach out for these global neighbors. What if we were there , crying for hunger and crying for survival every day, and they were in our positions, instead?Shouldn’t we do something about it?

There are many cases in our country who are suffering from hunger. Food is needed to live and it provides nutritional support for the body. You can’t work without eating nor studying while starving. We are fortunate enough to have food in our plates every single day. We are somehow able to help, it is our duty as human beings to do so.

-The problem of society is no one cares of these people who don’t have enough money to buy foods. Many of Filipino people are lazy that’s why they have no proper or legal work. They only beg you for food or money and that’s all. It’s okey for them to live like that, that’s why they are continuing doing the same thing everyday. The government have less care of the people in the streets but I’ts not the government, I’ts the parents who don’t have a plan for birth and It’s because the parents don’t have a work because they don’t finished they’re school. Parents must take responsible in their childrens so no one is suffering in hunger.

-This advocacy should be supported, to take an action of this problem. Rizal did not want to see people who is suffering in hunger. Rizal will make a way to solve this problem by giving free foods, teaching them to be not lazy so they can have a work and all parents must take responsible in their children like they will sent their children in a school so they can learn and have knowledge that they must study so they can work. We need to be unite and help each other.

The problem in our society?
The main problem of our society is poverty.
Poverty is the cause and effect of issues like hunger and thirst. Unemployment and having a very low income is also a cause of poverty. It is also the reason why a lot of children can’t afford going to school. Education is a main tool for us to avoid poverty. We should know the importance of learning. Poverty is a major cause of social tensions and threatens to divide a nation because of the issue of inequalities and in particular income inequality.

Why do you think rizal will support this advocacy?
Rizal desired to elevate the way of living of his fellow Filipinos. These people are oppreessed, much like the people during his time. He would point out that their poverty comes from the lack of job opportunities and proper education to help them learn new skills and literacy.

Elsie Dela torre

After reading this article a lot of realizations comes to my mind. I realized how blessed I am that I can eat 3 times a day or even more than that. How blessed I am that my parents have stable job and can provide me my needs like food, water and other essential things that we need.
Poverty is the main problem that our society facing now, there’s many of our fellowmen are suffering from hunger beacause of poverty. When poverty hits you, it also the time that hunger comes to your way. I can say that this advocacy should be supported to save our fellowmen suffering from hunger. I think that the government should focus in this matter to lessen the number of Filipino’s suffering from hunger, I know that we can’t totaly solve this problem but atleast by doing something we can lessen them.
But at some point not only the government have to take the responsiblity to solve all this matter, I think it will also start with us. How can i say this, as I read this article, the mother in the story is having a seven child and she’s pregnant too. I think before we bare a child we should think first our situation and the future of our sons/daughters so that in the future they’re not one of our society problem.
If Rizal was still alive today I think he’s one who will support this advocacy. Rizal sacrifices his lives because he dont want his fellowmen suffers. As far as i know Rizal is a doctor and treat her other patient for free, in connection with this, he did’nt want to see his fellowmen suffering. Rizal will also give advices to the parents to plan the future of their family.

Samantha Harada

The one of the problem now a days is the low class society struggled everyday living. They don’t have food to eat their stomach scrumbles their night dreams linger as foods float in the air surrounding.

Rizal will support them because we already knew that he loved our country very much so he will do everything for the Filipino no matter what.

Sayuri Bolante

This is one of the advocacy I support because I believe that by giving free food to the poor promotes awareness to the society about the hunger issue we are facing today. If the government can provide free condoms why cant they provide free foods? its not that they are required to give extravagant or sumptuous food but at least, they should provide cheap but healthy foods enough for those people who really can’t afford to provide their own. By giving out free foods, we are not teaching them to be dependent to the government (We should also monitor the free foods we are giving) but we are helping them gain energy or nutrition they can gain from the free foods we give, in that way they can use their energy to work and save up so they can afford foods on their own. I believe that healthy people/citizen reflects a healthy country. there are many ways on how we can support this advocacy. as for me, I think the best way to support this advocacy is to be a volunteer in a feeding program conducted by the government or even the NGO’s. I know people who really can’t provide enough food not because they don’t want to but because they really cant. People who are disabled, street children and old people living in the streets. they cant look for jobs because of their situation and even if they ask for alms its still not enough for them to provide foods for their selves.

We can actually help the poor by giving them food or spare changes. i have witnessed many children around our school begging for money and food and it is sad to see that at a young age they start to work or even beg for people’s extra food or money. i myself is willing to help those in need. but not to an extent that they will depend on me. every time i see young individuals or even older ones i give them my spare, because i know that little things make them happy and i know i live in the more fortunate areas of our country so helping won’t do me any harm. it makes you happy when you see you are making other people happy.

Isa ito sa mga magandang paraan para kumonti ang mga malnourished at malnurtion. Dapat pondohan to ng ating gobyerno. Tulad na lang ng mga tao sa pagilid ng ating school (NU) kung mapapansin nyo may mga bata na na mamalimos sa mga tao para pambili ng pagkain. Kung may libreng pag kain sana sa mga mahihirap ay inaasahan ko na di na mangyayari pa ito. Kaso malabo ang mangyari to kasi SOBRANG GAHAMAN NG ATING GOBYERNO. PROUD AKONG PINOY AKO NGUNIT KINAKAHIYA KO ANG GOBYERNO KO.

elizara dela cruz

Food for free? How I wish it’s true. in my daily life whenever I pass the streets on my way to school there’s a lot of scavenger seeking for food. I saw it with my own eyes how they tried to look for food in the trash cans. When they can’t find food to eat they look to another, but when they find let overs, somehow they’re satisfied. this advocacy really proves how lucky I am to eat three times a day. one time, walking back to school with my my lunch food in hand, there was a little girl that approached me, asking if she can have my food. At first I said no, saying “sorry this is for my lunch. “both her reply really touches my heart “She said ” ate pls di pa ako kumakain kagabi pa, wala akong mahalukay eh.” And way shook me. so i decided to just give it to her and buy another one cause i still have an extra money.6

Christian Villaruel

Free food is impossible to make it happen because first the government should fund for this and the government is facing alot of problems so this is going to be impossible, there’s a way to handle this we can give away our leftovers and we can give some extra money for them to buy the food. When i see any children that begging for some extra money for them to buy foods i don’t hesitate to give them money, i reach in my pocket and if there’s any money that i have i gave to them.

christian orquia

Para sakin mas maganda bigyan ng libreng pagkain ang mahihirap o mababang presyo para mataguyod nila yung pang araw araw nilang pangangailangan sa buhay dahil sa panahon ngayon kunti lang yung nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral nakakapagtrabaho kung mahirap ay o pulubi ka sa pagilid mahirap kang tanggapin sa isang trabaho. para mataguyod ang pangangailangan ng pamilya sa pang araw-araw.

Food for free? Impossible because now theres nothing free in this world. You should pay for everything living and all the necessary things etc. I saw many people starving to death and i feel sorry for them all of us should eat and theres a way to it if the government will use the fund properly maybe the food for free will be possible for everyone.

Food For Free rescues fresh food—food that might otherwise go to waste—and distributes it within the local emergency food system where it can reach those in need.

Through a combination of food rescue, farming, and transportation services, we give food programs year-round access to fresh fruits and vegetables, while our delivery program brings food directly to isolated seniors and people with disabilities.

Our programs address not only short-term hunger, but obesity, diet-related disease, and other long-term health effects of food insecurity and poor nutrition.

In addition, food rescue—also called salvage or gleaning—reduces food waste.

Food for free? If government can give some free food i say yes to that. But in other the government cant provide money for the food or else they are corrupt. I can help this advocacy to give food for those who needed if the government will provide those needs. If that is impossible they cant give free food or else it would be worsen.

Jerico Yvan Dones

This is a story that never gets old and poverty here in the Philippines seem to be undying no matter how hard the government is “trying”. It is no question that poverty is plague in our society that demands a whole lot of effort. It requires cooperation from those in the lower class and those in the higher class. DO NOT WASTE FOOD seems like a very good start, but if it wasn’t for those leftovers, their families would have nothing to eat.

The real issue here is not about FOOD; it is about poverty and the solution to that goes deeper than “do not waste food”. It needs people who are eating pagpag to be more motivated in life, to actively participate in their communities, and to be able to grab the opportunities that are coming their way. It also requires the government’s attention and the initiative for them to open jobs for our dear constituents who felt lost in the race of life. Giving out food for free will only encourage these poor people to drown in poverty, and where would the funds come from? From the taxes that the working class people pay? From those people who work their backs off just to be able to provide for their own families? I say no. It isn’t fair. Let the less fortunate be guided to a rightful path of job opportunities but never tolerate laziness.

I am part of the middle class, and my parents earn enough for our family because of hard work. I do condemn the idea of leaving leftovers on my plate since what we have in our household is just enough for us. A lot of people have made it out of the poverty line, and with the government’s best interest, there will be an end to this poverty.

Yes it hard to see many of people in our country suffering this kind of problem. I think they are right on their advocacy because for my own mind, I also want to help them to give foods and I also want them to give a proper work for them to be able to give thier family a happy life. In the Philippines, there so many problems that our governmnent facing but I think to resolve it we must to start in the basic, the basic unit of community is family because, the family gives us the power to do our job as a filipino citezen that lead us more productive to our country.

Honestly, way before the media bombarded us with the “Food Shortage” issue, there are already a lot of people suffering from it. It seems, media has exagerrated it or the shortage has gotten worse than before. I think the solution starts from each and every Filipino, like avoiding taking too much food on their plate if it’s too much for their appetite to avoid left overs. And if it’s the rice shortage we’re worried about,there are a lot of alternatives of rice, i know it is the staple food of Filipinos, but if there really is a shortage and if continues then some sacrifices should be made.

Poverty has been a cancer in the Philippines for many years from now, that is why it results for families not to have a decent meal in a day. But of course, no parent will allow their children to not have their meals. With this, they tend to have ‘pagpag’ as their food for the day which results to many illness and malnourishment. To help them, I am pushing to pass the Anti- pagpag law. This will prevent the establishments from putting still consumable foods into trash. It will also drive the parents to make more ways to earn and not give their family ‘pagpag’.

Poverty is the major problem our country has been facing. There are family who really can’t eat thrice a day because they can’t afford to buy and the income they have is very limited and sometimes it is never enough. Although the government is taking action in line with this, still it is not enough. They are providing funds to raise small families who really can’t afford to eat even once a day to help them get over the day. But, as far as I can see this, the government shall not only provide them the food they need but a job that will make them earn to produce food. These families who are suffering should be given opportunities to earn a ling. A law shall be created and I want to call it “Job for All’. In this law, all of the family can have their own earnings as wall as they can afford to buy foods for their family. Sometimes, a job is not enough to raise a family if the employee really got a big family so the government should not stop on giving the, a hand.
