SOME 32 bakeries in Navotas City will now offer breads at a discount after receiving 10 sacks of flour each from the City Government.

​The city distributed the P1 million worth of flour that the San Miguel Corporation donated to help bakeries and enable Navoteños to buy breads at a lower price.

“We have delivered 320 sacks to registered bakeries who are willing to offer their products at a discount. Our Local Price Coordinating Council will monitor if these establishments have abided by our agreement. We will replenish their stock once found to be compliant,” Mayor Toby Tiangco said.

​“Pandesal, monay, buns and loaf breads will be sold P1.00-P5.00 lower than their original price. We hope this will somehow help Navoteños, especially those who are severely affected by the enhanced community quarantine,” he added.

Meanwhile, starting today up to May 29, the Navotas Vocational Training and Assessment (NAVOTAAS) Institute will also provide breads for the city’s 18 barangays.

Vocational graduates of Bread and Pastry Production will bake daily 1,000 pieces of bread, which will be delivered to one barangay per day.

Eleven volunteer home bakers were also given one sack of flour each to produce breads and pastries for distribution within their respective neighborhoods.

​“We are grateful for the San Miguel Corporation and all our donors for their generosity. We assure that all donations will reach Navoteños in most need of assistance,” Tiangco said.
