A LITTLE TIMELINE:

‘Pagod na ako sa inaction’: How a community pantry rose to fill gaps in gov’t response
https://www.rappler.com/moveph/community-pantry-covid-19-lockdown-april-2021

Dubbed the Maginhawa Community Pantry, its purpose is to build a community that will give and take by their own volition, without the intervention of third parties. Non first stocked the pantry with vegetables she bought from nearby vendors, along with basic necessities from the grocery such as alcohol, face masks, canned goods, and rice.

The pantry became a big hit and attracted residents from San Vicente, Pook Marilag, Sikatuna Village, and UP Campus, among other areas. It went viral online and garnered a lot of media coverage.

One of the main things people ask Non is how and why she started the pantry. “Pagod na akong magreklamo,” she told Rappler. “Pagod na ako sa inaction.” (I’m tired of complaining. I’m tired of inaction.)

Non put her faith in community action. The pantry’s simple working principle was from a popular slogan, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs,” which Non’s sister aptly translated to Filipino, “Magbigay ayon sa kakayahan, kumuha batay sa pangangailangan.”

From the first community pantry on Maginhawa Street, Quezon City, dozens more have opened not only in Metro Manila, but also in some Luzon provinces, the Bicol region and in Mindanao, prompting Caloocan Bishop Pablo Virgilio David to call it “the most tangible sign of hope.’’

The National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC) shared several posts on Facebook accusing community pantries of propaganda.

Ana Patricia Non, who began the movement last week, appealed to Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte for help as she said 3 police officers have asked for her contact number and to which organization she belonged.

“Mula sa isang pantry sa Maginhawa magiging pantries na ito! Simula bukas (April 27) magiging donation drop off center na ang 108 Maginhawa St. tapos ihahatid natin ang goods sa mga barangay sa Diliman na karaniwang pinanggagalingan ng mga recipients,” the advisory read.

(From one community pantry in Maginhawa, it will now become community pantries! Starting April 27, our address at 108 Maginhawa St. will become a donation drop off center. Then, we will deliver our goods in barangays in Diliman where recipients usually come from.)

How a Community Pantry Sparked Movement of Mutual Aid in the Philippines

What the community pantry movement means for Filipinos
https://cnnphilippines.com/life/culture/2021/4/19/community-pantry-filipinos-pandemic.html
Quote
The concept behind community pantries is not new. For example, universities in the U.S. developed food pantries purpose-built to provide assistance to students in crippling debt back in 2013. Thailand’s Too Pan Sook (Pantries of Sharing) emerged late 2020. But Filipinos have unequivocally instituted a movement that’s entirely their own. From affected restaurant owners in Maginhawa to farmers in Tarlac, Non continues to be surprised by the ones who are taking action and participating in the initiative she started only a few days ago.

https://www.rappler.com/nation/quezon-city-government-issues-community-pantry-guidelines-reduce-health-risks

Under the city guidelines, community pantry organizers are expected to:

* Wear face masks and face shields
* Require patrons to wear, at least, face masks before they can get commodities
* Enforce a one-meter distance among patrons in line
* Prohibit eating and drinking in the pantry's vicinity
* Prohibit patrons from unnecessarily touching or handling items on display
* Maintain cleanliness in the pantry's vicinity
* Be responsible for food safety (food must be fresh)
* Adopt a system to "mitigate abuse following reports about certain persons exploiting the community pantry and taking more than their fair share." This can include imposing limits per person or household.

Community pantries are also only allowed to operate from 5 am to 8 pm.

Community Pantries and the AFP



Red-tagged? Community pantries get military help
https://newsinfo.inquirer.net/1422736/red-tagged-community-pantries-get-military-help

Armed Forces of the Philippines chief of staff Gen. Cirilito Sobejana has expressed support for community pantries and is thinking of offering each soldier’s daily allowance to help sustain them, despite the counterinsurgency task force’s firm suspicion that the food aid project is a communist effort.

Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana also assured community pantries of support and assistance.

At a press conference, Sobejana said the military organization will support existing community pantries by providing food and allotting funds for their initiative.

“I already directed my J7 to issue a directive to all our units to organize themselves particularly the civil military operations unit and support this kind of undertaking among the other partners in the society,” he said.

The Defense Department, meanwhile, said it was also ready to assist such initiatives.

“Kindness is everyone’s color. Kahit ano pa ang paniniwala niya, basta taos pusong tumutulong, susuportahan natin. The DND appreciates and supports the initiative of these community pantries. We are ready to assist if requested by the LGUs and the DILG and, if necessary, to deploy the AFP Mobile Kitchens where they are needed,” Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana said in a statement.

“The AFP Mobile Kitchen is one of our soldiers’ humanitarian actions to help and provide assistance to our less fortunate kababayans as our nation continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.

Military personnel from the 7th Civil Relations Group and 11th Civil Military Operations Battalion prepared the food packs and personally handed them to the beneficiaries.

Sobejana said the beneficiaries were identified by local officials of Barangay Socorro. They included street sweepers, pedicab drivers, and families living in nearby slums.

The AFP Mobile Kitchen is staffed by soldiers with culinary training while civilian volunteers help in the preparation of the meals.

The project is a joint undertaking of the AFP Civil Relations Service, Joint Task Force National Capital Region (JTF-NCR), and the AFP Quartermaster General.

The Philippine Air Force Tactical Operation Wing-Eastern Mindanao (TOWEASTMIN) had a community pantry dubbed  “Tulong Bayanihan para sa Sambayanan” in Barangay Talomo proper, this city on Saturday, April 24.

First Lieutenant Erwin Manabat, the Civil-Military Operation (CMO) officer of TowEastMin said the pantry carried “Kayang-kaya, at may Pag-asa, Basta’t Magkakaisa” as its theme.

It was held together with Tactical Operations Group 11 (TOG 11) and  Philippine Air Force Civil-Military Operations Group (PAFCMOG).

The team distributed a total of 144 kilos of rice, 288 pieces of assorted canned goods and 240 pieces of instant coffee drinks which benefited 220 locals in the area.

Manabat said the activity would not have been possible without the unrelenting support with partner stakeholders including the Mindanao Peace Council, H.O.P.E. Kababaihan Foundation and SAMAHAN – group of student leaders of Ateneo de Davao University which assisted in the production of the food packs and personally helped in the distribution.
