Representative Wilbert Lee of the Agri Party list stated on Tuesday that he was in favor of the “Kadiwa ng Pasko” program being continued beyond the Christmas season and further increased his desire for it to be institutionalized and conducted on a longer and greater scale.

“Supported by us is the Kadiwa pagpapatuloy even when it’s raining (We support the extension of the Kadiwa even next year). In fact, since this initiative benefits both producers and consumers, we should consider institutionalizing it and implementing it on a far bigger scale “Lee uttered.

The program, which went into effect across the country in November, aims to give access to affordable food and other basics while also giving local farmers and small businesses a market. In other words, it can aid Filipino families in adjusting to the high cost of food.

The Kadiwa ng Pasko rolling stores offer consumers rice from the National Food Authority (NFA) for as little as PHP25 per kilo and sugar for PHP70 per kilo.

The Kadiwa stores, according to the congressman, offer the ideal model that the nation should follow to satisfy the right of the public to affordable and healthy food and to ensure the viability of farmers’ and fisherpeople’s livelihoods.

“Ganito naman talaga dapat ang goal ng agrikultura natin, atin natin ang mabigyan ng disenteng pagkakakitaan atin ang mga magsasaka at mangingisda, atin natin ang mga presyo ng mga bilihin upang hindi magutom ang mga mamamayan. Sa ganitong system, winner tayo lahat (This is precisely the goal of our agriculture, in order to reduce the cost of goods, prevent population famine, and provide our farmers and fishermen with a respectable living.) In this way, we all come out ahead “The soloist spoke.

Additionally, the legislator stated that the Kadiwa program’s continuation will be “at least a year’s gift for Filipino families groaning under the weight of pricey food.”

“It’s a great help, especially amid a suffering public, who are concerned because of rising prices of basic commodities,” said Lee. “Napakalaking tulong, lalo pa’t patuloy na umaaray ang madla, at nangangamba dahil sa pagtaas ng presyo ng mga bilihin (It’s a great help, especially amid a suffering public).”

Filipino consumers’ attitudes were “more negative,” according to the fourth-quarter results of the Consumer Expectations Survey (CES) conducted by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas.

Due to worries about rising commodity prices and household expenses, low income, a lack of suitable jobs, and working family members, the overall consumer index declined from -12.9 percent in the previous quarter to -14.6 percent, according to the BSP.
