Also ‘nutribun’ for Manila’s schoolkids.

TO help Manila’s poor, Mayor-elect Isko Moreno announced that he will bring back “Kadiwa” rolling stores and the “nutribun” which used to be served to schoolchildren.

Moreno said the “Kadiwa” stores will go around the city to sell rice, meat, fish and vegetables at cheaper prices, so that the residents can save on transportation money.

“Malaking tulong sa pamilyang Manileño na magkaroon uli tayo ng rolling stores tulad ng Kadiwa, dahil mura na, sariwa pa at komportable silang makakabili ng pagsasaluhan nila sa mesa,” he said.

Along with “nutribun,” which is bread fortified with vitamins and minerals, Moreno said that the city will also distribute for free milk for the students of daycare and elementary schools.

“Kapag busog at malusog ang mga bata, makapag-aaral nang maayos yan. Paano ka makakapag-isip at mag-aaral kung kumukulo ang sikmura mo. Kaya ibabalik natin ang pagrarasyon at pagpapakain ng nutribun at gatas para sa buong elementarya ng Maynila,”  Moreno added.

The Kadiwa was launched during the time of President Ferdinand Marcos and First Lady Imelda Marcos.
