The award is given as a token of appreciation and is conferred today, February 23, 2024, at the Proxy Hotel, during the Culminating Activity of the 73rd Founding Anniversary of DSWD Field Office 5.Present during the occasion are the key officers of DSWD FO 5 headed by its Regional Director, Dir.

CDA’s strong support and collaboration with DSWD is crucial in addressing critical concerns on hunger mitigation, food and nutrition security, and poverty reduction through the empowerment of the cooperative sector as potential food supplier to the supplementary feeding program and Food Stamp Program of the Department. CDA also supports the empowerment and registration of Community-Based Organizations (CBOs) and Sustainable Livelihood Program Associations (SLPAs) into cooperatives.
