National Food Authority administrator Angelito T. Banayo calls for closer coordination with local government units and other government relief agencies to speed up rice issuance and giving assistance to victims of typhoon Pedring.

Banayo also tasked  the field offices to  monitor closely the  price of staple in the market to prevent any unwarranted increase in the price of the staple even as he informed the NFA has  sufficient food security rice stocks to meet any upsurge in demand for rice.

With a present high food security inventory, Banayo is confident it can meet rice demand of LGUs and  government relief agencies in areas heavily affected by flood and  where  a lot of residents are housed  in relocation centers.

According to Banayo, the NFA has todate issued a total of 10,425 bags of rice to local government units and relief agencies giving  assistance to typhoon victims. The bulk of initial rice for relief assistance totaling 7,575 bags were issued mostly to the provinces of Region 5.  The Bicol region was also heavily battered last month by typhoon Juaning.

For Albay which was still reeling from the effects of earlier typhoon, the  NFA has  issued a total of 6,565  bags of rice  through the Department of Social  Welfare and Development. Another 500 bags  of rice each were also respectively issued  for Camarines Norte and Catanduanes  also through the DSWD. Meanwhile 10 bags were issued to Camarines Sur through the province’s Sangguniang Panlalawigan.

He also cited that in Region 3,  the NFA  has issued  1,900 bags to the Office of the Governor for  distribution to  the flood affected  towns of Hagonoy, Paombong and San Rafael. 

Also in Region 3, the local government of San Manuel  in Tarlac and  Pilar  in Bataan has also availed of  50 bags each for distribution to the victims of typhoon Pedring in their respective municipalities.

For Region 2, meanwhile, a total of  550 bags of rice were issued to the local government of  Isabela and 300 bags for Cagayan.  Initial damage to stocks and infrastructures were also placed at P5 million.  

Banayo has also authorized the NFA Central district in  the National Capital Region to issue 50 bags of Iron Fortified Rice to the city of Manila.
