Barangays in Central Luzon were encouraged to invest in nutrition programs to keep their residents healthy and resilient.

The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) reminded local officials that “a healthy barangay is needed to build a resilient community.”

DILG Regional Director and Regional Nutrition Committee Vice Chair Karl Caesar Rimando said nutrition was “one of the very important sectors that local governments should pay attention to.”

“We know that as barangay leaders, you know the basic needs of your community better. You fully understand the situation of your barangay,” he said in a Philippine News Agency report.

“Hence, you are the ones who know very well what are the programs, projects, activities that the barangay should pay attention to. Hopefully we do not forget the programs for the nutrition of our youth,” he said.
