DA launches brown rice campaign in the regions
The Department of Agriculture (DA) launched its Brown Rice for Good campaign to promote consumption for better health.
Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel Piñol led the launching in the Cordillera region while also distributing farm equipment.
In Cebu City, Cebu Daily News reported that presidential assistant for the Visayas Michael Dino led the launch of the Brown Rice for Good Challenge.
The challenge in Cebu involves posting photos of meals with brown rice in one’s social media account using the hashtag “#brownrice4good7.”
Each hashtag is equivalent to 100 grams of brown rice and Region 7 is targeting at least 50,000 hash tags for 100 sacks of brown rice that would be donated for charity.
The DA is promoting the consumption of brown rice, which is healthier than white rice.
