DA will extend the Kadiwa sites’ reach as PBBM promises an extension.

President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. promised to extend the Kadiwa program’s operation until March of the next year, while the Department of Agriculture (DA) assured that it is intensifying efforts to increase the number of Kadiwa sites.

DA Assistant Secretary Kristine Evangelista stated that Marcos, the concurrent Agriculture chief, intended to benefit more customers with more accessible and inexpensive agricultural commodities during the Laging Handa public briefing.

“Our beloved President mentioned that because he saw that there’s a significant difference in the prices of the products sold in Kadiwa compared to those in other markets and that it truly benefits our consumers,” she said.

In order to accommodate more government entities, other regular Kadiwa sites of the DA are also being transformed into Kadiwa ng Pasko.

“Our Kadiwa ng Pasko po, again, is this relationship with other agencies, an initiative of the Office of the President, mayroon na po tayong more than 15 venues for our Kadiwa ng Pasko,” she continued.

As she urged other government agencies to open more Kadiwa facilities in diverse areas, Evangelista praised local government agencies around the nation for their close collaboration with the DA.

According to her, the LGUs are so involved that they are the ones who aid in identifying strategic chances for Kadiwa sites, taking into account the quantity and size of the demand from consumers.

With this, the DA urged customers to support the Kadiwa ng Pasko consistently because it directly affects farmers as well.

“Ating Kadiwa and Ating Kadiwa ng Pasko are both currently being tangkilikin. Every payday, at least, tayo po maghahanap ng mga lugar na saan puwede tayo mag-Kadiwa ng Pasko. Then, as stated by the president of the country, “We hope you will continue to assist our Kadiwa, especially the Kadiwa ng Pasko.” It will be hoped that this would be done alongside the Marso and with the support of the entire community. Every payday, in especially, we search for locations where we can perform Kadiwa ng Pasko. After then, we will continue this until March, as our beloved President stated. And perhaps it will benefit our Filipino neighbors “She spoke.

As of Friday, there were 256 Kadiwa locations across the nation, 44 of which were in Metro Manila.

In Kadiwa sites, cheaper agricultural products are offered for sale, including rice for PHP25/kilo with a limit purchase of 4 kilograms per person, sugar at PHP70/kg, and red onions at PHP170/kg, among others.
