The Marcos administration is committed to addressing the long-standing challenges of food security and increasing product prices in the Philippines. One of its innovative projects is the Hapag kay PBBM Program, which promotes sustainable urban farming initiatives while combatting hunger and poverty.

Through the Hapag kay PBBM Program, Filipinos are encouraged to grow their food and other kitchen ingredients in their homes or nearby communities, empowering them to adopt sustainable agricultural practices even in small-scale settings. This aligns with President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s goal of addressing poverty and promoting food security while protecting the environment.

The program is a comprehensive initiative in the Philippines that addresses food sustainability through a collaboration between the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG). It combines two existing projects, the DA’s Green Revolution 2.0: Plants for Bountiful Barangays Movement and the DILG’s Halina’t Magtanim ng Prutas at Gulay Movement, to create a more holistic approach to addressing food security in the country.

To further aid small businesses and producers in recovering from the pandemic and provide affordable agricultural products to Filipinos, President Marcos Jr. has vowed to increase the number of Kadiwa ng Pangulo outlets in the country. 

Additionally, the Department of Agriculture Youth Farmers’ Challenge (YFC) program supports selected Filipino youths' agribusiness proposals related to food production and processing for 2021 and 2022.

President Marcos Jr. expressed his positive outlook for the future of the Philippines' agricultural sector during the Mega Manufacturing Plant's inauguration in Batangas. He believes the plant will contribute to the government's efforts to address food security, employment, and economic opportunities. 

The Department of Agriculture (DA) has been consistently offering innovative solutions to the persistent problem of food supply in the Philippines. —iTacloban (Source: PIA)
