Good news to all solo parents! The Quezon City Council has approved for second reading the ordinance wherein there will be 20% discount in all restaurants and food establishments given to all registered solo parents.
KAMI has learned from Manila Bulletin that the proposed law by Councilor Raquel Malañgen would be giving more benefits to indigent solo parents across Quezon City.
Once passed, those who have their solo parent ID are entitled to a 20% discount in all food establishments in Quezon City every first Saturday of the month starting from 12 noon to 6 p.m. for single or accumulated receipts with a total of P2,000 per solo parent.
According to Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, the council has been advocating to help the solo parents in the city.
“There is an increasing number of indigent solo parents in the city, particularly young single mothers, and that is why we continue to carry out our advocacy of assisting solo parents,” Belmonte said as reported by Manila Bulletin.
The aforementioned proposed law is in accordance with Solo Parents Welfare Act (Republic Act 8972) which states that registered solo parents must be given discounts by government agencies to ease their economic inconvenience.
