Author: DA-AFID | 14 November 2022

The National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM) exhibit at the Department of Agriculture in Quezon City opened on November 14, 2022. NRAM which runs for the whole month of November aims to raise rice awareness, promote better health, and support local farmers, among others.

NRAM’s “Be RICEponsible.” will run until 2028 to ingrain the message in the hearts and minds of every Filipino.

As such, the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) encourage everyone to be RICEponsible by not wasting rice, by eating brown rice and rice mixed with other staples, and by supporting locally-produced rice.

Present during the opening ceremony were DA Assistant Secretaries Arnel de Mesa and Jane Bacayo, and Proponent and Project Lead of NRAM and Be RICEponsible campaign Dr. Hazel Antonio of PhilRice. ### (photos by Gian Carlo Luague, DA-AFID)
