These kids are in for a huge daily treat.

Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian took the school feeding program to kids’ homes due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but he’s happy to pull it off despite the logistical challenges.

Almost 7,700 students from kinder to Grade 6 are actually receiving their daily bread –– but not the small pan de sal you may have in mind.

“I had to blur the faces of the kids pero as you can see they have to use two hands to hold the nutirbuns sa laki neto. In fact, in some cases the nutribuns are as big as their faces. Busog!,” the politiko said proudly. “This program will ensure they get the right caloric intake even at home.”
