CONCEPCION, Tarlac – The Technical Education and Skills Development Authority- Concepcion Vocational School (TESDA-CVS) conducted a four-day community-based training in producing yeast bread.
Uniformed personnel from the First Civil Relation Group (1st CRG), 31st mechanized Infantry Company and Malayang Magbubukid ng Asyenda Luista (MALAYA) were able to complete the training.
“Four different kinds of yeast bread such as crispy donuts, cheese bread, pandesal, and ube cheese pandesal were taught to the participants,” TESDA-CVS School Administrator Alvin Turalde said.
A total of 340 crispy donuts, 800 cheese bread, 780 pandesal, and 710 ube cheese pandesal were produced by the end of the training. The products were distributed to indigent families of MALAYA and frontline workers manning checkpoints within Tarlac province.
This project is in line with the Philippine Army’s “Kapwa Ko, Sagot Ko” program which aims to enliven the Bayanihan spirit in the community.
