2020 Manaragat Festival theme

For 2020, as revealed and published last year right after the 2019 Manaragat Festival, the theme for this year as originally scheduled is “KARISYO KATBALOGAN: Strengthening our Advocacy, Safeguarding our Legacy”.

A timely theme that relates to the current situation that the city is facing against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

That despite the pandemic, the advocacies on environmental protection and cultural preservation must be continued and strengthened because to protect our nature and to preserve our culture never ceases; and instead must be safeguarded and protected not just for current generations but most importantly for the generations to come.

2020 Nutrition Month Celebration

Tomorrow, July 01, 2020 officially commences the 46th Nutrition Month and will carry the theme “Batang Pinoy, SANA TALL… Iwas stunting, SAMA ALL!” as approved by the National Nutrition Council (NNC) Technical Committee.

The theme calls for a collective vision of having taller Filipino children by preventing stunting through the participation of government, non-government organizations, civil society, business, academe, communities and families. 

Stunting or pagkabansot in Filipino, is the impaired growth and development experienced by children due to poor nutrition, repeated infection and inadequate psychosocial stimulation.

Stunting can lead to low educational performance, lost productivity, increased risk of developing non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and even death. The economic cost of stunting is high equivalent to 1.5 to 3% of the country’s gross domestic product.

The chosen theme underscores the urgency of addressing stunting considering that the Philippines is one of the 10 countries with the most stunted children in the world.
