Vegetable vendor donates produce in community pantry in Rizal


Volunteers and donors who enjoy donating are popping up in several parts of the National Capital Region Plus (NCR, Bulacan, Laguna, Cavite, and Rizal), including a small vegetable vendor who shared her products with those people in need.


Nanay Agnes, a vegetable vendor, sells a variety of vegetables on the streets of Taytay, Rizal, on her handmade bike. When a manager of a neighborhood pantry purchased several vegetables from Nanay Agnes, she did not hesitate to donate several bundles of kangkong and sweet potato leaves (kamote tops).


The organizer of the Taytay Communication Pantry is Rhodnie Janolino said that his wife Donna buys vegetable to Nany Agnew worth P200 when she saw the ambulant vendor on bike in Lupang Arenda, Barangay  Sta. Ana.


“Nanay Agnes was surprised why we bought many vegetables. When she learned that they will be shared through the community pantry, she did not hesitate in donating even if my wife insisted to buy them instead. She said she wanted to share even through her own little way” Janolino said on post.


Janolino hopes that by telling his story of Nanay Agnes' generosity, he will inspire and encourage others to help and with the assistance of village officials, fellow youth members of the church-related group based in Purok 3, Road 10, Lupang Arenda, in Barangay Sta. Ana, Taytay, pledge to continue their own pantry-sharing operation, which also provides hot meals to Purok 3's less fortunate residents.
