CALOOCAN CITY, Metro Manila – A few months back, there was a looming fear of food insecurity as the spread of novel coronavirus disease posed threats to the country’s food supply chain.

As such, the Department of Agriculture (DA) intensified its call for communities and households to start their own vegetable garden to ensure available and nutritious food for all, particularly for city dwellers.
