In line with the extended enhanced community quarantine brought upon by COVID-19, the Pampanga State Agricultural University (PSAU) started distributing food bags to stranded university students, PSAU frontliners, and nearby communities on 7 May 2020 in Magalang, Pampanga.

 

Red Tilapia, a species promoted under the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR)-supported project, titled “Utilization of Velvet Bean (Mucuna pruriens) as Feedstuff on the Aquaculture Performance of Red Tilapia,” is one of the food products included in the provided relief assistance, along with rice and chicken eggs.

 

The said operation is one with the country’s efforts in alleviating the situation due to the pandemic crisis. ###
