    According to Garcia, the video of six women taking all the goods at a certain community pantry prompted him to come up with the humorous reminders. He believes that the witty signages will gently remind the public to just get what they need without sounding offensive.

    "We don't want to offend anyone. So we thought of a fun way to tell them," Garcia explained.

    To help Filipinos badly hit by the pandemic, Ana Patricia Non started a community pantry in Maginhawa Street in Quezon City shortly after the reimposition of COVID-19 lockdowns in the NCR Plus Bubble.

    With the slogan “Magbigay ayon sa kakayahan, kumuha batay sa pangangailangan”, the community pantry concept was quickly adapted by several communities all over the Philippines as a means to help needy Filipinos even outside the Greater Manila Area.

    While many community pantries offer free fruits, vegetables, grocery goods and other food items, a number of community pantries have provided unique items such as shoes and slipper from the country’s shoe capital Marikina, potted plants from University of the Philippines Los Baños, as well as various seedlings of fruit-bearing trees and vegetables from DENR-NCR Technical Services Office in Diliman, Quezon City.
