The Department of Agriculture (DA) - Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) is giving away free vegetable seeds and seedlings so you can start growing your own vegetables. By planting your own veggies, you don't always have to rely on going to the supermarket to buy certain vegetables. 

Amid the enhanced community quarantine because of COVID-19, different local government units distributed relief goods to their respective communities. In some communities, they were also given seeds to plant. This is a possible long-term solution that can help with food security, especially if the crisis persists.
