·1 min read

AROUND 1,500 residents of Barangay Tejero, Cebu City who were affected by Typhoon Odette were served free lunch on Wednesday, December 29, 2021, courtesy of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP)'s Mobile Kitchen.

The AFP Mobile Kitchen that is directly under the Field Service Group of the AFP Logistics Support Command was deployed to the Visayas Command’s Joint Area of Operations following the devastation brought by the typhoon to Cebu.

The Mobile Kitchen was set to aid indigent and most needful communities that were affected by Typhoon Odette.

The Mobile Kitchen arrived the city on Friday, December 24, 2021.

Aside from Barangay Tejero, the AFP's Mobile Kitchen also served 3,000 hot meals a day at Barangays San Roque, Ermita and Pasil last December 25 to 27.

Lieutenant General Robert Dauz, who is the commander of AFP's Visayas Command, said the mobile kitchen will continue to serve free breakfast, lunch and dinner to typhoon victims until the situation normalizes.

“Your Visayas Command always look out for the welfare of our fellow Filipinos as we extend help in any possible way. Providing free meals might not be a long-term solution, but at least it could help alleviate the condition being felt by the people of Cebu from the wrath brought by the Supertyphoon Odette. We can do this! After all, Filipinos are resilient in whatever obstacles we face,” Dauz said. (JKV, PR)
