Beliau berkata bantuan bakul makanan itu telah memanfaatkan 1.1 juta keluarga atau ketua isi rumah.

“Sebanyak RM34.6 juta menggunakan tabung NADMA (Agensi Pengurusan Bencana Negara), manakala RM72.2 juta menggunakan peruntukan daripada Kementerian Kewangan.

“Ini merupakan satu inisiatif keprihatinan kerajaan untuk memastikan rakyat terjejas yang memerlukan bantuan sepanjang pandemik Covid-19 dibantu dan untuk memastikan rakyat dapat meneruskan kelangsungan hidup mereka,” katanya di Dewan Rakyat.

Beliau menjawab pertanyaan Mohd Azis Jamman (Warisan-Sepanggar) yang memintanya menyatakan jumlah perbelanjaan langsung kerajaan bagi program bantuan bakul makanan bagi tahun 2020 dan 2021.

Zailah berkata program pemberian bekalan barangan asas keperluan diagihkan dan disampaikan melalui JKM.

Katanya, permohonan dibuat dari pelbagai mekanisme termasuk melalui Talian Kasih menerusi bilik gerakan, media rasmi kementerian dan agensinya.

“Nilai bakul makanan diagihkan pada Fasa 1 iaitu pada Mac 2020 adalah bernilai RM50 manakala bagi fasa-fasa yang seterusnya adalah bernilai RM100 diedarkan oleh JKM,” katanya.
