29th of May, 2022 was an eventful day at the food bank as we reached out to vulnerable women in Mangoro community in partnership with Bloomberg via our TEFAP intervention. The outreach was focused on employee engagement and serving vulnerable families. Some members of the Bloomberg team were in attendance and they actively took part in the outreach activities.
The first phase of the outreach involved packaging of food items into the Bloomberg boxes of hope. Afterwards, vulnerable women in Mangoro community trooped into the food bank anticipating the collection of their boxes of hope. The food distribution started at exactly 12.00pm, these women expressed their happiness as they received their boxes. Their day was even made extra special as Bloomberg team gave them some cash to take care of their transport.
The outreach ended on a good note for everyone. One of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Bolanle lamented about how the prices of food had gone up within the past months and was extremely grateful to the organization for the relief items that would last her up to 2 weeks.
