Cordillera - Knowing the health benefits of vegetables, how it can keep the body's immune system  and make it ready in fighting infections and viruses, the local government of Abra has bought vegetables from local farmers and distributed them to residents affected by the Luzon-wide enhanced community quarantine. 
According to Gov. Joy Valera Bernos, vegetables are better options to be given to residents rather than canned goods and instant noodles. 

She also said that by buying produce from the farmers, the LGU can help dispose their vegetables because they were not allowed to leave the province due to the Enhanced Community Quarantine. 

Among the vegetables purchased by the Abra LGUs are chilies, tomatoes, and eggplants.

Eating vegetables can provide many health benefits like vitamin C which was found to be beneficial against various groups of infections including bacteria and viruses.

People who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. Vegetables provide nutrients vital for health and maintenance of the human body.

On Tuesday, Senator Pangilinan reminded local government units to support the farmers in the country when purchasing relief operation items for their constituents. 

Pangilinan said that "for supplies for its feeding programs such as rice, fruits, vegetables, and other agricultural products, local government units, in coordination with the Department of Agriculture and other concerned agencies may directly deal with farmers and fisherfolk".
