On Thursday, 23rd of February 2023, Lagos Food Bank Initiative will be reaching out to the aged and widows with staple food items and other relief materials through the Temporary Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).
Considering the financial hardship and how it has impacted the ability of several households to have access to food and basic needs, Lagos Food Bank recognizes the food insecurity this has brought on several households, especially the elderly. The donated food items will last a family of 4/5 for about 2-4 weeks, thus reducing food insecurity and ensuring proper nutrition in vulnerable households.
Lagos Food Bank focuses on making healthy and nutritious meals available for all and to ensure that everyone has access to food. Lagos Food Bank has been delivering hope to the under-served communities for 7 years, and this outreach will further the attainment of SDG 2: zero hunger
The goal of this outreach is to create a hunger-free society and to ensure access to healthy and
nutritious meals to the aged and widows, and thus reducing food insecurity one intervention at a time.
- To reduce the burden of hunger created by the economic downturn.
- To reduce the impact of hunger-related vices and illnesses by donating healthy and nutritious food items.
- To ensure there is equal access to food for people living in under-served communities.
