The job placement program is an innovative approach adopted by Lagos Food Bank to achieve its goal in solving underlying causes of hunger and malnutrition which include poverty and unemployment. This program is geared towards ensuring our beneficiaries get jobs to enable them to fend for themselves, contribute to the enterprise, and not solely rely on the food bank for
food and relief items. We achieve this by collating the basic skills and educational qualifications of our unemployed beneficiaries into curriculum vitae. These skills are advertised digitally using
e-flyer. Over 200 beneficiaries have benefitted from the job placement program as of April 2021.

PROBLEM WE ARE TACKLING

Lagos Food Bank Initiative main goal is to achieve zero hunger (SDG 2). Economic Instability has led to a high rate of unemployment which has led to poverty and hunger. The job placement program was birthed due to the high rate of unemployment amongst our beneficiaries.
