A community pantry is an area where people can give anything and those who are in need could also get anything, all based on their needs.
The Benedictine nuns setup their own community pantry despite the red-tagging issues thrown at organizers. The nuns were seen praying during the opening of their community pantry. They set it up outside the St. Scholastica's College campus in manila. Many netizens cheered them on and prayed for them.
Some of those who were lining up to get their small share from the community pantry received some tickets. One of those who received the tickets from the QCTFD said that he was just hoping that he could get an ayuda. The worse part was that they were given a ticket when they are there to seek some assistance through the community pantry. He said that they could have just driven them away instead of giving them tickets.
