Chooks-to-Go Turns Office to Kitchen for Batangas Evacuees
Chooks-to-Go converted its office in Batangas to a kitchen to help the Batangueños in need, today February 26, 2021 from 1:00 am up until 6:00 am, the people of Chooks-to-Go Batangas cooked warm meals which were distributed to the three evacuation centers in the province, namely in Barangays Aya, Tumaway, and Poblacion 5.
Just like last year, the people living in Taal Lake had to be evacuated due to fears of another Taal eruption. With food running short in the centers, Chooks-to-Go answered the call of duty.
Over a thousand evacuees received meal packs from Chooks-to-Go. “Ang aming opisina sa Batangas ay pansamantalang ginawa munang kusina at commissary at tulong-tulong sa pagluto at pag-pack ng mga hot meals ang aming mga volunteers,” said Bounty Agro Ventures Inc. president Ronald Mascariñas.
“Pinagmamalaki ko ang aming mga kasamahan sa Batangas na may tunay na pusong tumulong at dumamay.”Over a thousand packs of Chooks-to-Go packed meals were distributed to the 1,030 evacuees from the three barangays. And it will not stop until the families can come back to their respective homes.
Employees prepare meals to be distributed to evacuees in Batangas. “Napakalaking pagbabago kasi hirap sila sa pagkain dito at umaasa sa mga donasyon. Wala kasi yung mga panghanapbuhay nila dito. Ang kabuhayan nila ay bumagsak,” shared Brgy. Tumaway captain Hernando Agno.
“Malaking tulong ang nabigay ninyo sa mga mamamayan ng Talisay na nandito sa evacuation center. Ang mga tao ay nasisiyahan sa inyong pagtulong.”
