In the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 cri
sis in the country, Kapuso actor Marvin Agustin encouraged restaurant owners to cook food for frontliners.
On Twitter, Agustin told restaurant owners who are worried about their stocks to cook meals for hospitals. He also said restaurant workers, who are also affected by the enhanced community quarantine in Luzon, can be recipients of the free meals.
“To those restaurants worried about their stocks na baka masira during this enhanced community quarantine, you can cook and donate to hospitals or your employees. Do it now bago wala makinabang,” he tweeted.
A lot of social media users thanked him for his concern for the frontliners–who are fondly called “COVID heroes”–and the restaurant workers who continue to work despite the ongoing community quarantine.
