On Saturday 8th of January 2022, the Lagos Food Bank Initiative welcomed Kamaru Usman, a Nigerian-American professional mixed martial artist for a second time to the Food Bank. The event was set in place to officially launch The Kamaru Usman Food Raising Initiative and foster a partnership with the Lagos Food Bank, an organization aimed at supporting vulnerable children within indigent communities in Lagos State.
This initiative was borne out of the desire to eradicate the menace of hunger and malnutrition, and the Food Raising Program will be undertaken in partnership with distinctive brands. The co-founder of the foundation, Kamaru also explained that “The purpose of this initiative is to create a platform to continue to support Lagos Food Bank”.
The launch of the event was not only the highlight of the visit, as Kamaru and his team donated various relief items from Nigerian Breweries and De United Foods Industry Limited (DUFIL) to the Lagos Food Bank warehouse to show their continuous support of the initiative.
