The Philippines now has an estimated 350 community pantries which directly serve local residents who suffer from hunger amidst the pandemic.

It all started when Ana Patricia Non set up a bamboo cart filled with basic groceries and fresh produce at Maginhawa, Quezon City. People with limited resources are now able to bring home fruits, vegetables, canned goods, rice, dried fish, noodles, to their loved ones.

Patricia’s efforts inspired other Filipinos to put up their own community pantries in order to help those who were in dire straits. 

Students, employees, at alumni ng De La Salle University now have a community pantry of their own, while the Benedictine Sisters of St. Scholastica’s college were spotted praying during the opening of their community pantry in Manila.
