Fresnedi: Muntinlupa prepares food assistance for 3 to 4 months amid Covid-19 crisis


Muntinlupa Mayor Jaime Fresnedi instructs Social Service Department chief Analyn Mercado to ensure adequate supply of food packs for residents amid enhanced community quarantine.

MUNTINLUPA Mayor Jaime Fresnedi announced that the local government is prepared to provide food assistance to city residents for at least three to four months amid enhanced community quarantine.

Fresnedi assured the public that the city government has adequate supply of basic commodities for distribution to indigent residents and daily earners affected by the disruption of work.

“The local government has a disaster preparedness plan and is equipped to respond to the public’s needs during this health emergency. Our distribution will not be a one-time event but will be continuous,” he noted.

The local executive leads the initial distribution of 1,500 grocery packs to Barangay Poblacion. The Muntinlupa City Government targets to provide 8,000 grocery packs per barangay. Fresnedi also ordered the early release of Muntinlupa City Hall employees’ end of month salary to help them tide over Covid-19 crisis.

Barangays in Muntinlupa City are now implementing tougher quarantine measures including the closure of its borders following the rise in reported cases of Covid-19 in the city.

Local chairmen agreed to coordinate with their counterparts for the closure of their respective inter-barangay borders along Baybayin to prevent the movement of people across the barangays.

Mayor Jaime Fresnedi ordered barangays chiefs to strengthen lockdown measures and patrolling of residents who are still going out of their homes amid the ongoing enhanced community quarantine.

The Muntinlupa City Government also launched its disinfection drive through the Muntinlupa City Disaster Risk Reduction Office and BFP Muntinlupa starting in Alabang Viaduct, Starmall Terminal, City Terminal, South Station Terminal, and Alabang Public Market.
