Author: DA Communications Group | 23 March 2020

Agriculture Secretary William Dar led the two Department of Agriculture (DA) Task Forces on Food Resiliency and Supply, and Service Continuity in connection with Covid-19 on March 24 at DA, Quezon City.

The meeting was set to ensure that food will be available from production to consumption during the enhanced community quarantine through its Food Resiliency and Recovery Action Plan, as adopted by the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF-IED).

With the three-pronged objectives of food productivity and availability, food accessibility and mobility, and food price stability, the DA is proactively crafting programs, projects, and activities (PPAs) to be implemented in a crisis-oriented environment and ensure food security throughout the year.
