You Can Shop Directly From Farmers And Fisherfolk On The DA's New Website
They'll deliver straight to your doorstep!
Now more than ever, it's important to support local businesses and industries. With the Philippines plunging into a recession in August amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, citizens are urged to patronize not only homegrown brands, but local workers in agricultural sector who work daily to bring Filipinos our much-needed sources of nutrition. If you've been making the effort to support these workers and local businesses or have been wanting to start, here's something that will help you out: The Department of Agriculture just launched eKadiwa ni Ani at Kita, a website that lets you buy food directly from farmers and fisherfolk.
The eKadiwa ni Ani at Kita website lets you source kitchen essentials like meat, fish, eggs, dairy, vegetables, fruits, rice, condiments, and more from a variety of local farms and shops. All you have to do is log on to the website and you can browse different foods and ingredients from sellers like Farm Fetch, Farm Share, Express Ani, Tuko Fresh Produce, Farmville Agricultural Source Team, Mama Sita's, and more. Simply put everything you need in your cart, input your contact details, and eKadiwa will deliver your necessities straight to your doorstep. That way, you can get a bulk of your grocery needs without having to leave the house while also supporting Filipino farmers and fisherfolk.
