“In Nueve Ecija for the launch of the PAG-AHON Program with Sec Dar. #letsgrow #plantplantplant”
During the DOA event last May, the new Food Security ambassador said during his speech, “I believe that the access to healthy, fresh food ia s basic right that should be afforded by every Filipino. It’s our farmers and fisherfolk who are the ones protecting this right. They are the unsung heroes of our country, the backbone and heartbeat of the economy. I want to encourage all of us to support efforts and dedication of farmers and fisherfolks who work tirelessly to provide food we put on the table. Let us now take this for granted.”
The 27-year-old actor also posted on social media about his new work.
“LETS GROOOW. Thank you to the Department of Agriculture and Secretary Dar for trusting me with the role of Ambassador of Food Security. Thanks for the gift. Can’t wait to show everyone what we’ve been working on during quarantine!”
James first joined showbiz in 2010 after he emerged as Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash. After starring in a slew of successful movies and TV series, James also ventured into the music industry, releasing three studio albums as well as launching his own music label, Careless in 2017 along with fellow PBB alumi and close friend Bret Jackson.
