Chooks-to-Go Pilipinas 3×3 league owner Ronald Mascariñas assured that the dormers stranded inside University of the Philippines Los Baños will receive proper meals during the duration of the enhanced community quarantine.
For lunch and dinner, the dormers will receive a total of 60 packs of chicken, distributed to the 10 dorms operating inside the campus.
“As an alumnus of UPLB, the university is immensely close to my heart, an institution whom I owe everything,” said Mascariñas, president of Bounty Agro Ventures Inc.
“This is Chooks’ way of supporting our Iskolar ng Bayan — the future heroes of food security and agriculture for our nation.”
The stores near the campus that are still in operation will provide and deliver the food to the headmasters of each residence hall.
Currently, there are almost 400 students still inside the campus who cannot leave due to the ECQ.
Mascariñas is hoping that once they leave the confines of UPLB, the students will not forget to pay it forward, not just to future generations of Iskos and Iskas but to the entire country.
“My hope is that we inspire these students to walk the talk when they are out of the university,” said the amiable executive. “Hindi man nagsasalita ang mahihirap nating mga kababayan, umaasa silang maalaala ninyo sila at bitbitin o i-angkas man lamang sa inyong pag-asenso balang araw.
“Mabuhay ang ating mga Iskolar ng Bayan sa UPLB!”
