MANILA—The Quezon City council has approved on final reading an ordinance granting a 20-percent discount to solo parents at all food establishments in the city.

The discount, according to the council, will be given every first and last Sundays of the month with a maximum restaurant bill of P2,000.

It added that the discount will be tax deductible for the establishments.

The discount aims to help ease expenses of single parents when dining at restaurants, particularly during special occasions of their children.

To avail of the discount, parents should present their "Solo Parent ID," which they can apply for at the city's social services department.
