The Food of the Poorest of Filipinos called “Pagpag”Published by: Eron of Talk Loud | Dated: 15th of April, 2009
In our daily lifestyle, we almost eat the proper and right foods that we wish we could taste. From hamburgers, spaghetti, beef steak, noodles, fried chicken, pork chop and many more. The reason why I can’t wrote it all down here is that we almost eaten all kinds of food to our knowledge.
But little do some of us know that the poorest of all Filipinos are living in Metro Manila. They are what we know as beggars and some are those who live under bridges, canals and others. They eat a common food called by them as “pagpag.” It is the left over foods from different fast food chains and houses that are thrown on garbage. The poorest of all Filipinos pick these up and cook it again and sometimes worst eats it straight right from the garbage bag or can.
So think again if you spit on your left over food before throwing it. Because you know now that somebody eats it again just to survive a day of hunger. Why our government does keeps on saying that it is dirty, don’t eat those? Why, do they have solutions for it? Actions speak louder than words.
