Maginhawa community pantry organizer Ana Patricia Non announced that the distribution of free foods, groceries and other essential products is suspended. Ana said that she wants to ensure the safety of the volunteers.
Patricia said that the Maginhawa community pantry along Maginhawa Street in Quezon City will be temporarily closed over red-tagging fears. They have also expressed their sadness over the suspension of their operation.
