While uncertainties continue, San Miguel Corporation (SMC) is reviving Nutribun, the vitamin-packed bread, for distribution to charitable groups and critical Metro Manila communities where families have either no access to, or unable to afford, food amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

At the same time, the company continues to deliver SMC food products consisting of canned food, coffee, and biscuits to LGUs, checkpoints and hospitals within Metro Manila. The first batch of Nutribuns will be donated to Caritas Manila.

SMC President and COO Ramon S. Ang said the bread it started to produce is packed with nutrients and provides instant energy at 250 calories per bun. “This is safe, sufficient and nutritious food for the hardest-hit families facing hunger as a result of the Covid-19 crisis,” Ang said.

Nutribun, which was introduced in the 70s, was distributed primarily to public elementary school students as a complete meal, in a bid to combat child malnutrition in the country.

“We will continue to step up and find creative ways to help the neediest and most vulnerable. Panic will not solve anything. We have the means, we just have to work together to win this battle,” he said.

Food donation started in the City of Manila with other cities and hospitals and other frontliners also receiving food donations.

These include:

•    Philippine General Hospital

•    Philippine Children’s Medical Center

•    Quirino Memorial Medical Center

•    Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center

•    Las Pinas General Hospital

•    St. Luke’s Medical Center

•    The Medical City

•    Mandaluyong LGU

•    Paranaque LGU

•    Eastern Police District

•    Northern Police District

•    Camp Karingal

Apart from Nutribun, San Miguel Corporation (SMC) also started delivering free rubbing alcohol to front liners in Metro Manila through the Department of Health, hospitals, crisis centers and LGUs in the fight against the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

This, as the company earlier announced it was utilizing one of its Ginebra San Miguel Inc. facilities to produce 70% ethyl alcohol, following a shortage of alcohol used by people as a disinfectant and sanitizer.

In the statement sent by San Miguel to THEPHILBIZNEWS, they will prioritize communities and hospitals in the National Capital Region (NCR) where the most number of Covid-19 cases have been recorded.
