Each of Taguig City's 28 barangays will get PHP250,000 as aid for the entire period of the enhanced community quarantine, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In a statement Tuesday, Mayor Lino Cayetano said barangay chiefs can use the money to buy additional food packs for their constituents. The aid is on top of the regular city aid being released by the local government to the barangays.

"The barangay assistance is apart from the almost 300,000 relief packs being distributed by the city to its citizens. The food packs contain rice, canned goods, coffee, energy drinks and instant noodles," Cayetano said.

As of Aug. 8, around 210,000 families have already received their food packs.

"We have allotted for all Taguig families, regardless of economic standing to receive food packs from the local government,” Cayetano said.

He added that the city aid and food packs are apart from the cash assistance provided by the national government, for which Taguig has made preparations for disbursement.

The local government distributes 30,000 food packs a day. Each food pack is good for three to four days for a family of five. It includes rice, canned goods, coffee, energy drinks and instant noodles.

Cayetano added that the city would focus on ramping up vaccination and enhancing the city’s testing, contact tracing and hospital capacity to control the transmission of the highly contagious Delta variant.
