Gisultihan ni Senador Koko Pimentel ang Department of Agriculture (DA) nga gamiton ang utok niini inay himoung problema ang nagsobrang abot karon sa mga gulay sa Benguet ug uban pang dapit sa Cordilleras.

Matud sa senador, na mahimong paliton sa DA ang mga gulay ug ihatag sa Department of Education (DepEd), Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) ug uban pang ahensya aron gamiton sa ilang feeding ug assistance programs.

“It’s actually good news that we have extra food supply at low prices in the market. Let’s make more good news by distributing these vegetables to schools, families and other beneficiaries that need food,” matud ni Pimentel.

Gitnguha niya nga himoung kaabag ang Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) aron maghatud ug gulay sa ma tunghaan, baranggay, sa gibutangan sa mga tiguwang ug sa ma lisud nga dapit.

“Those of us in government should use our kokotes. I’m sure the DA and other agencies have the funds, personnel, and capacity to make this happen. Buy the vegetables cheap, help sellers and merchants dispose of their excess supplies so that nothing goes to waste, then boost government social programs. This can be a win-win situation for all,” pagpasabot ni Pimentel.

“We need imaginative minds with imaginative solutions to pressing social problems,” dugang pa niya.
