The news spread on Twitter like wildfire when a former congressman tweeted the incident.

“Holy smokes! A man arrived at our community pantry in Makati and gave away P100 to everyone in the line. He didn’t introduce himself. Thank you, whoever you are!”

Additionally, he also uploaded a short clip of the man handing out the money.

The community pantry serves the residents in the small district that intersects Makati and Manila.

Earlier this year, community pantries turned up in different parts of the country for those in need during the pandemic.

In case you missed it, community pantries allow people to take food and other basic items for free.

According to Ana Patricia Non, people help out each other and give what they can.

She organized the first community pantry in her village in Maginhawa, Quezon City last April.

In a few days, several districts in the metro replicated the idea.

The idea is similar to food banks in Australia and the United States.
