According to local media, figures from the survey showed that 16.3 percent of the respondents, an estimate of 3.6 million households, said that they went hungry in the past three months. This was below March's average of 17.8 percent, an estimate of 3.9 million families, and 2013's annual average of 19.5 percent. REUTERS/Romeo Ranoco (PHILIPPINES - Tags: SOCIETY FOOD POVERTY)
