Besides relief goods, Vice-President Leni Robredo on Tuesday also served lugaw and hot pandesal for evacuees affected by a restive Taal volcano at Tuy, Batangas.

“Nagbibigay po tayo ng relief goods. Nagbibigay po tayo ng mats at toiletries pati unan. At dito nagbibigay rin po tayo ng ‘Leni Lugaw’ na special tsaka po mga pandesal,” Robredo posted in a tweet then holding a paper with the sign “Leni Lugaw” made by her staff.

Robredo, in a tweet, belied blogger turned government official, Overseas Workers Welfare Administration Deputy Executive Director Mocha Uson, over allegations claiming that the vice president is limiting her relief goods to a bottle of water and 5 pieces of pandesal each food pack.

The vice president also helped the evacuees staying at Kaylaway Elementary School, Nasugbu, Batangas.
