Community pantries, just like those in Luzon, continue to pop up in Bohol amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
Some of the first to set-up include food establishments and other small businesses in the city.
Tuslob Buwa De Bohol, located along M. Parras, filled their community pantry with bags of rice, vegetables, canned goods. There were also clothes made available to those who wish to get them.
Another community pantry opened at Sticker Republic, located near the Land Transportation Office (LTO) main office just in front of the motorpool.
They named it the MaajoHong Community Pantry.
They set up a few tables with free root crops and other vegetables from farmers.
Other community pantries are in Alona in Panglao, Lawis in Barangay Booy in Tagbilaran and San Jose in Talibon.
The organizers say they were inspired by the community pantries in Maginhawa, Quezon City and in P. Noval Street in Manila.
“Paghatag sumala sa Makaya, Pagkuha Base sa Kinahanglan” read the messages printed on the signages in the area.
