LOS BANOS—They may be rivals on the court, but the father-and-son tandem of Bong and Kiefer Ravena are one in reaching out to the people who are guarding us during this community quarantine.

On Thursday night, the TNT coach and the NLEX star guard, along with the rest of the Ravena Family and Kiefer's girlfriend, volleyball superstar Alyssa Valdez, gave out free dinner to the frontliners stationed along the checkpoints in the boundaries of Cainta and Pasig.
The Ravena Family, with Alyssa Valdez, took a selfie while packing meals to be delivered to the frontliners.
"Important din na makatulong tayo sa mga frontliners ng COVID-19 kasi sila yung talagang nagsa-sacrifice ng health nila para sa health ng buong bansa. Kaya sobrang naappreciate namin ng family ko yung mga ginagawa nila," Kiefer Ravena, whose family resides in Cainta, said.

Each meal consisted of roasted chicken courtesy of Chooks-To-Go, rice, and salad.

Kiefer Ravena then lauded Chooks-To-Go president Ronald Mascarinas for handing out the chickens in a flash.

"Kahit hindi naman kailangan sabihin, tutulong yan sila Boss Ronald," Ravena said. "Nung nagsabi ako na gagawin namin ito, agad agad naka-ready na yung chickens."

The 3x3 basketball patron, who graduated with a degree in agriculture major in animal science in the University of the Philippines campus here, also extended his help to the students in the university who are forced to stay in their respective dormitories inside the said campus by also giving out free chicken meals earlier in the day.

"This is Chooks' way of supporting our Iskolar ng Bayan—the future heroes of food security and agriculture for our nation," Mascarinas said in a statement in his Facebook post. "My hope is that we inspire these students to walk the talk, or 'Walk the Chooks', when they are out of the university."
