Dear ESSA Community,
We would like to share this quick update from the Iloilo City Cluster. Last Friday, the team presented the proposal for the Kitchen and Community Garden Project called “Kaon Ka?! Tanum Ta!” program to the members of Brgy. Cochero, Iloilo City.
It was a successful presentation, with Suzy Dae Guadaña and Joji Basbano as the cluster representatives. The proposal was so well received that the Barangay decided to choose next Sunday August 24, 2020 as the first week of the 6-month program. Using this as a prototype, the Iloilo City Cluster hopes to refine the process in Brgy Cochero. We envision that it will be adapted by the local government units all throughout the city. Iloilo City is currently back in GCQ and there are no guarantees regarding what the situation will be in the future. This makes it all the more necessary to start the project. The community should start growing their food in order to create future food security.
