BALANGA CITY, Bataan Vice Mayor Noel Valdecanas has urged city folks to be RICEponsible during the opening ceremony of the Barangay Week in Poblacion on Monday. “November is National Rice Awareness Month and I ask everyone to avoid wasting rice”, he messaged.

He added, “I have learned that each Filipino wasted 9 grams or 2 to 3 spoons of rice daily in 2008 which would have sufficed to feed 2.5 million persons”.

The government hatched the “Be RICEponsible” campaign that aims to encourage farmers, policy-makers, and the public to be RICEponsible in their own ways. The campaign engages every Filipino to do their part in achieving rice self-sufficiency in the country.

City Mayor Joet Garcia, Valdecanas and members of Sangguniang Panlungsod joined the Poblacion Sangguniang Barangay in leading the Barangay Week opening program.
