Written by Jj Nagac

During the CdeO’s 25th press conference on COVID-19, City Economic Cluster representative Paul Douglas Calingin said that the city government is taking part in the “Kadiwa on Wheels”  (KOW) initiative of the Department of Agriculture (DA).


According to Calingin, the city government will help in establishing security and providing assistance in information dissemination and coordination with barangay officials upon rolling out of KOW.


“Our role would involve in disseminating information with the help of our barangay technicians and in coordinating with our barangay councils through the head of the committee of the agriculture,” he said. “We will also provide assistance for the security.”


Calingin added, “Most of the produce that will be sold by KOWs came from the farmers of Miarayon, Talakag, Bukidnon.”


KOW is the agriculture department’s initiative to help farmers and fisherfolks to market and sell their products while allowing consumers an easier access to healthy, nutritious, and reasonably priced food amid the current health crisis brought about by COVID-19.
