Kidapawan LGU provides vehicles to help farmers – Mayor Evangelista


Kidapawan City Mayor Joseph A. Evangelista has turned over six new vehicles to be used by local farmers in selling their farm produce.

The vehicles consist of three refrigerated vans, two hauling trucks and one backhoe.

“The new trucks will be used for hauling and transporting the harvests of city farmers from Kidapawan to be sold to other markets,” the city government said.

Farmers’ produce are being bought by the city government at farm gate prices to help them earn and sustain their livelihood.

Meanwhile, the city government said the new backhoe will be utilized to prepare the digging of identified fish ponds in the villages.

Farmers will greatly benefit from the said assistance, Evangelista said.

The City Agriculture Office will be tasked to manage the said vehicles, which were funded out of the P76-million Food Sufficiency Program of the city government for this year.
