Aug 11, 2018 @ 13:24

Quezon Governor David Suarez on July 31 received the CROWN (Consistent Regional Outstanding Winner in Nutrition) award from the National Nutrition Council (NNC) for having consistently been awarded the Green Banner Award from 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The NNC recognizes local government units (LGU) that are implementing effective nutrition programs.

Suarez, in his acceptance speech, said addressing malnutrition needs political will.

“Nutrition is the bedrock of development. It all begins with a political decision to address malnutrition,” he explained.

“Hindi ito matatapos overnight, but we need to start now. Kaya nagtatagumpay ang programa is because we were able to harmonize our infrastructure, social welfare, agriculture and education programs with our nutrition program.” Suarez added.
