Government to sell more NFA rice in Smokey Mountain
The National Food Authority (NFA) has partnered with the barangay of Smokey Mountain in Tondo, Manila for the distribution of affordable rice in the area.
“The 27,000 residents of Smokey Mountain are now assured of a steady supply of low-priced NFA rice as the agency’s Central District Office recently partnered with the barangay unit to open an additional outlet at the barangay center and make the P27 per kilogram NFA rice accessible to the residents,” the agency said in a statement.
Smokey Mountain is a resettlement community composed of 30 tenement buildings housing 5,200 families.
The barangay center outlet, called Tagpuan Day Rice Delivery Program, is the third NFA rice outlet in the area, in addition to one located inside the community itself and another at a nearby talipapa.
In total, NFA-NCR has accredited a total of 1,885 retailers in 564 markets across Metro Manila area to sell NFA rice at P27/kilogram.
