QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – The Office of Vice President Leni Robredo has all but perfected the art of photo ops to promote its programs and initiatives, but it may have shot itself in the foot when it posted photos of its recent food distribution in San Mateo, Rizal.
Robredo proudly posted photos of OVP’s relief program, distributing spaghetti to needing families.
But alas, netizens noticed that the spaghetti wasn’t even contained in take-out boxes, you know, like those you get when you order from Jollibee.
Many were also concerned that OVP’s distribution of cooked food may have violated sanitation and safety regulations by the Department of Health. “What if in the course of the day of distribution, some of the spaghetti may have already been spoiled,” one netizen asked.
Since it was merely for photo ops, it could have made more sense for OVP to distribute a bag of (uncooked) rice and a few canned food to the recipient families.
A total fail.
