DSWD exec shares agency preps for July run of Walang Gutom 2027 in media forum

Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) Undersecretary for Innovations Edu Punay explains the different initiatives of the agency in addressing hunger in the country at the Saturday News Forum at the Dapo Restaurant in Quezon City.

Undersecretary Punay told reporters on Saturday (May 11) that preparations for the full-scale implementation of the agency’s Walang Gutom 2027: Food Stamp Program is already underway with validators to be deployed this month to conduct registration and validation of the 300,000 target beneficiaries for the program’s July run.

The DSWD official expressed optimism that the Food Stamp Program at the end of its 3-year run will enable the 1 million food-poor target beneficiaries to rise above the poverty threshold and achieve food security, barring unforeseen incidents such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
