The community pantry at Cabuyao Integrated National High School is open to all students and parents who will pick up their learning modules, as part of their efforts to give additional support for their students.
Schoolteachers at the Cabuyao Integrated National High School (CINHS) recently took advantage of the upcoming school year to extend aid to families who were still affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
As they started handing out learning modules in preparation for the resumption of classes on September 13, teachers at the CINHS also opened a “community pantry” where students and their parents could also get free groceries and other basic commodities.
According to Dorie Galang, officer-in-charge of CINHS, the community pantry is open to all students and parents who will pick up their learning modules, as part of their efforts to give additional support for their students.
Originating in Quezon City last April, “community pantries” have since spread throughout the Philippines as a convenient and efficient mode of assistance for many whose livelihoods were affected by the pandemic.
Under the community pantry system, everyone in the neighborhood is free to give according to their capacity and receive according to their needs.
“Ang Community Pantry na ito ay bunga ng panawagan namin sa mga magulang at pribadong indibidwal na tumulongsa mga pamilya ng CINHS na nangangailangan,” Galang said.
“Sisikapin namin na hanggang sa huling araw ng bigayan ng modules ay mayroon pa rin kaming sapat na maibabahagi para sa mga pamilyang apektado ng pandemya.”
