Yahoo Poll: Are local food banks genuine community pantries or fronts for the Communist Party?

Community pantries are spreading across the country. These food banks are offering free food to those hit hardest by the pandemic amid the delay in government aid.

But not everyone is a fan of the community-driven initiative.

A ranking government official said people planning to start their own community pantry must secure a permit from their local government.

A government task force also shared a post accusing the community pantries as fronts by the Communist Party of the Philippines for recruitment.

Ana Patricia Non, the woman who inspired this humble community initiative, was reportedly questioned by the police and linked to the communists – a practice by security forces known as red-tagging.

Do you believe these food banks are genuine community pantries or fronts for the Communist Party?
