Lazatin supports KADIWA program

ANGELES CITY — Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” Lazatin, Jr. on May 22, 2024, shows his full support to the Katuwang sa Diwa at Gawa para sa Masaganang Ani at  Mataas na Kita, also known as the KADIWA program, of the Department of Agriculture. 

To date, kiosks were installed at the City Hall compound premises beginning May 22 until May 23, 2024, showcasing basic commodities and services, including harvested crops.

This has been the second time that the city government participated in the KADIWA. 

KADIWA was launched by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. through the DA to ensure the availability and affordability of food in areas with high demand and in communities with low-income families. 

Lazatin has been pushing for food security, as well the welfare of farmers and local businesses. 

Lazatin said the KADIWA is aligned with the city government’s commitment to uplift programs for farmers and local businesses.

“We are proud to support initiatives that promote access to affordable food, especially for those in need,” Lazatin said. 

Assisting during the event are the members of the Angeles City Economic Development Investment and Promotions Office led by Irish Bonus-Llego, supervised by Chief Adviser IC Calaguas and Executive Assistant IV Reina Manuel.
