Department of Interior and Local Government Undersecretary Epimaco Densing III went viral when he agreed with the official and stated that porridge is not essential. 

“Sabi niya kasi, non-essential si lugaw. Hindi talaga essential si lugaw. Pero kung sinabi niya, essential ang lugaw, ‘yun, tama ‘yun. Ang lugaw. Pero si lugaw ang binanggit niya. Non-essential talaga ‘yun, sa pananaw namin,” Densing stated.

However,Karen Davila expressed on more serious note, her thoughts on the matter. She wrote, “The palace settles it – Lugaw is essential. But what is so disturbing to me  is the level of discourse with the local authority. Nagpaliwanag na, mali pa. Ang kawawa ang ordinaryong mamamayan, na nagtratrabaho at kailangang kumita ng pera.”
