“Existing stocks might be releasedfirst since our target is to zero-out the stocks subject to reconditioningbefore issuing to ensure good quality,” he said. (With a report from PNA/PN) Under the joint agreement, 4Psbeneficiaries will be provided with rice which costs P30 per kilo. According to Canoy, should the millingof the procured palay (unhusked rice)will not be in full swing yet, NFA’s existing import buffer stocks can beutilized for the 4Ps requirement. Under the program, the NFA will supply20 kilograms of “quality” rice to all 4Ps beneficiaries in Negros Occidentalevery month, which translates to a monthly requirement of 47,350 bags or almost2.4 million kilograms. The program is expected to start thismonth, but NFA-Negros Occidental has yet to receive the final guidelines ondistribution, storage, among others. “Local farmers will be encouraged toplant and sell their produce to the NFA because there’s already a buyer,” headded. NFA provincial manager Frisco Canoysaid they would need almost 2.4 million kilograms of rice to meet therequirement of 4Ps beneficiaries in the province.“We’re just waiting for the guidelines from the central office so we canstart supplying the 4Ps beneficiaries,” Canoy added. The distribution of actual rice instead of cash for the rice subsidycomponent of the program is a collaboration among the Department of SocialWelfare and Development (DSWD), Department of Agriculture (DA), and NFA. During the implementation, the P600 monthlyrice subsidy for each 4Ps beneficiary will be downloaded to the NFA and will nolonger be included in the cash transfer through the bank’s automated tellermachine. In southern city of Kabankalan, forinstance, there is no available warehouse that can accommodate its requirementof about 3,000 bags. Canoy said storage can be a problemgiven such a huge volume of rice needed. Western Visayas is one of the sixpilot-regions of the program. BACOLOD City – The National Food Authority (NFA) will soon startsupplying rice to over 118,376 beneficiaries of the Pantawid Pamilyang PilipinoProgram (4Ps) in Negros Occidental. He further said that local governmentunits can also establish warehouses. “The market retail price of NFA riceis only P27 per kilogram so the excess might cover the delivery and storagecosts although we don’t know yet,” Canoy said. ABS-CBN NEWS NFA might hire job order workerssince, Canoy added, saying the agency has no logistical and employee componentfor the new program. Canoy said the program will help ricefarmers as it will provide a sure market for their produce. read more
