Panipuan officials headed by Captain Roberto Maglalang, representatives from the Department of Education and local poultry meat dealers and vendors. City Agriculturist Cristina Sangumay said the food served was supplied by poultry companies such as Minalin Poultry & Livestock Cooperative and Red Dragon Farm and private partners such as Fresh Options and McDonalds as promotion to the province's poultry industry. "Nagcommit sila na ipapakain ng libre ang kani-kanilang mga produkto bilang pakikiisa sa ating kampanya na ligtas kainin ang mga manok at itlog sa ating syudad," Sangumay said. During the program, City Health Officer Dr. Eloisa Aquino discussed the proper handling and cooking of food highlighting that properly cooked chicken meat and egg is safe for consumption.
