The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) under the Department of Agriculture is annually celebrating the National Rice Awareness every November in pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 524 s. 2014, with this year’s theme “Quality Rice Quality Life”.
With this the ATI invited the College and Senior High School students of Metro Manila College through Gawad Metronian Educational Foundation Inc. (GMEFI) to attend a seminar that aims to encourage the students and staff to be “RICEponsible” by valuing every grain of rice and eating healthier rice.
The activity was not only educational but it was also enjoyed by the students because of the games and prizes. Ms Faye Tanudtanud’s, an agriculturist and speaker, asked them questions after her presentation. The participants also made a pledge on valuing and eating rice.
