Ana Patricia Non Says Maginhawa Community Pantry Reopens Again in Quezon City
Maginhawa Community Pantry in Quezon City has reopened again after the organizer Ana Patricia Non temporarily suspends the operation.
Previously, Ana Patricia Non temporarily halted the operations of Maginhawa Community Pantry due to red-tagging. She wanted to ensure the safety of the volunteers distributing goods to the public.
On Wednesday (April 21, 2021), Ana Patricia Non reopened the Maginhawa Community Pantry in Quezon City. Hundreds of residents queued as early as 5:00 am to get some goods for the families and loved ones.
The program organizer said that she wanted to focus to the community program instead of paying attention to the critics. She doesn’t also want to spend her energy to hard-headed people.
“Starting today gusto po namin sana na magfocus tayo dun sa community pantry. Mas madaming sumusuporta naman po kesa bumabatikos. Ayaw ko po ibuhos ang energy ko sa mga taong hindi nakakaintindi,” Non said.
Non also encouraged the bashers and critics to visit the pantries for inspection. As of now, there are 120 community pantries in the country, according to the organizer.
“Kung may doubts pa po ang tao sa community pantry, bisita po sila sa kahit saang community pantry sa Pilipinas kasi hindi lang po dito ang umaani ng supporta, 120 na po ang community pantries sa buong Pilipinas,” Non added.
