Bagsak Presyo Market on Wheels to Supply Needs of Lockdown Barangay

LGUs can utilize agriculture to provide for food supply.

The municipality of Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur acts as “middlemen” to farmers of a locked down barangay as it provides municipal residents an alternative access to market produce through the bagsak presyo market on wheels. To prevent local transmission and mitigate spread of the virus, business establishments in the barangay were ordered closed and residents were prohibited from leaving their homes except for essential trips.
