Cadiz City is this year’s national finalist from Negros Occidental for the “Walang Gutom” Awards of the  Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD).  

Cadiz’s entry is Project PAT-BAGSIK or “Pagkaon Aton Tatapon-Bata Aton Giyahan sa Iya Kaalam”.  

Mayor Salvador Escalante Jr.  and some department heads will join a panel interview at the DSWD Central Office in Quezon City on June 25, a press  release from Cadiz City said. 

The following day will be the awarding ceremony at a venue to be announced later. 

“It’s inspiring to note that we are among the national finalists,” Escalante said.  

This means the “Walang Gutom” initiatives of Cadiz through Project PAT-BAGSIK were effective in eradicating, if not, in cushioning the impact of hunger, he said.  

“Being listed as one of the national finalists is a  validation that the local government of Cadiz is really serious in addressing hunger and poverty,” Escalante said.*
