PH Military deploying mobile kitchens for homeless amid ECQ

The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) is also doing its fare share in the battle against the novel coronavirus 2019 disease or COVID-19.

Not solely responsible for the strict enforcement of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) protocols they decided to deploy two mobile kitchens to Quezon City to provide hot meals for the homeless and street dwellers in the coming days.

As per the AFP, they will serve 3,000 hot meals a day in the next few days. The project started at the village of Tatalon, according to AFP public affairs chief Capt. Jonathan Zata in a statement.

Stranded workers, students, informal settlers and families in impoverished communities are also expected to benefit from the mobile kitchens.

Culinary-trained soldiers will prepare the meals daily, while support personnel will deliver them to designated drop-off points, Zata said.

Zata said Purok 1, 2 and 3, of Barangay Tatalon, Quezon City will be the pilot project site for the activity before possibly shifting to other adjacent communities.

He said provision of meals through the AFP mobile kitchen follows ECQ protocols which limit civilian movements and activities outside their residences. “Other identified beneficiaries include stranded workers or students receiving little or no support, informal settlers and families in depressed communities,” Zata said.
The project is being implemented by the Civil Relations Service AFP (CRSAFP) led by its commander, Maj. Gen. Ernesto Torres Jr. 

“Those who wish to contribute and be part of “Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko” campaign whether through the use of military resources or donations, may coordinate with the CRSAFP,” Zata said.
