She said barangay captains and city officials who will refuse to heed this order will face suspension.

“Favoritism and politics have no place during this time of need,” Belmonte said in a statement.

The Mayor issued the said notice after some poor families affected by the ECQ in her jurisdiction went to the streets and demanded food relief goods from the local government.


“This should not be happening because we have already distributed one million food packs in Quezon City,” she pointed out.
Belmonte then encouraged her constituents to not hesitate to contact her office through covid19foodrelief@quezoncity.gov.ph if they have not received food packs from the local government.
