Twenty-five tons of upland vegetables from Tublay and other Benguet municipalities were donated to indigent families of Manila.

More than 5,000 vegetable relief packs from three farmer's groups composed of more than 190 farmers, were sponsored by the Philippine Business for Social Progress (PBSP) earmarked for distribution by Caritas Manila as part of efforts to ease the plight of indigent Manila communities.

The shipment was made against a backdrop of plunging vegetable prices in the Benguet vegetable trading posts, as usual traders have found it increasingly difficult to navigate the trucking demands resulting from the enhanced community quarantine along trading routes.
