Lagos Food Bank is a non-governmental, non-profit, private-driven initiative committed to fighting hunger, reducing food waste and offering emergency food services through our proposed food banking network across Lagos state. LFBI’s goal is to be the leader in battling the menace of hunger and its causes by creating, supplying, and strengthening new food banks and in all the twenty (20) Local Governments Areas in Lagos.
We seek to alleviate hunger and poverty by delivering food and disaster relief free of charge. Our goal is to make a difference in our communities and create volunteer opportunities for all.
Our mission include providing monthly food stuffs to indigent people in Lagos, reducing hunger motivated crime in Lagos, feeding the destitute in need of food through a network of food banks by having at least one food bank in every Local Government Area in Lagos, and finally to educate religious organization, corporate entities and communities on how to start a food bank and embarking on crusade/advocacy to close the food gap in Lagos.
We identify our beneficiaries in the following ways:
A. House-to-House visitation to identify the indigent families
B. Liaising with small religious houses to provide a list of indigent members within them.
C. Identifying those that are obviously in need of food on the street, as we sight them
D. Going to CDA meetings within and outside our immediate community to announce our food project
