At the press briefing, Dar said, "Nais po namin siguruhin na mayroon tayong sapat na supply ng pagkain at itaas pa ang produksyon ng mga ito." (We wish to ensure that we have enough supplies of food and we will be increasing the production of this food.) This includes meat, fish, vegetables, and rice.

The DA is also ensuring a smoother flow from the food sources to those who are in need. "Lalong-lalo na yung nasa Visayas, Mindanao, at ang buong Luzon, vice-versa (especially in the Visayas, Mindanao, the entire Luzon)," Dar adds.

To further strengthen local production, Dar says that a number of farmers and fishers have received financial subsidies from the government.
