IMPLEMENTING GUIDELINES TINDAHAN NATIN PROJECT I.Rationale


(BIGAS AT NOODLES SA HALAGANG ABOT KAYA)

Poverty is caused by either lack of access, low income or opportunities that makes families unable to meet their basic needs. It continues to be a challenge to Filipino families particularly the 4.3[1] million living below the poverty threshold. In line with the relentless efforts of the government to fight against poverty, hunger and unemployment, Her Excellency, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has pronounced on the first working day of 2006 the release of some P35 billion from government savings to subsidize selected food items and finance projectsfor the poor. On the aspect of food, the President specifically announced that she wants to keep the prices of rice and noodles at affordable level. The burden of maintaining rice prices at P18/kg and fortified noodles below P5 naturally rest on the National Food Authority (NFA), which is tasked with the mandates of food security and stabilization. This Implementing Guideline is issued to ensure that the governmentsubsidized rice and noodles would truly reach the poor families through the Tindahan Natin Project.

II. Brief Description of the Project


The Tindahan Natin Project is a national government initiative for job generation, livelihood and food security. The project will provide lowpriced but good quality rice and noodles through a store jointly identified and endorsed by the DSWD, City/Municipal Social Welfare and Development Offices (C/MSWDO) of the Local Government Units (LGUs), the Barangay Council and subsequently accredited by the NFA. Distribution of government-subsidized rice and noodles shall initially be an urban poor poverty alleviation project in the 20 priority poor enclaves in Metro Manila where the national government (thru NFA), the respective local government units and accredited organizations/outlets shall converge and collaborate to ensure maximum benefits for the intended community beneficiaries for which they can buy good quality yet low priced basic commodities. The Tindahan Natin will be operated by the entrepreneurs, community-base organization, NGOs, LGUs, Brgy. Councils, existing retail/sari-sari stores, and other organizations registered and accredited by proper regulating agencies.

III. Objectives:

The project allows the poor families to have access to low-priced rice and noodles. Specifically, the Tindahan Natin aims to:

1. To ensure that families below food threshold get access to low-priced basic food items specifically rice and noodles;

2. To establish a system of rice and noodles distribution for families below food threshold; 3. To ensure that poor families will be able to maximize the optimum benefits of their income for consumer products; 4. To systematically identify poor families who are or within the food threshold who can benefit from low-priced rice and noodles.
