Feed A Family Food Relief Initiative
The Feed A Family Project has been an initiative of the Whitefield Foundation for over ten years. In our commitment to Zero hunger and poverty eradication, we usually maintain a food bank for welfare purposes. Distribution is normally based on application.
With the global pandemic and the ensuing lockdown, economic activities have come to an abrupt downturn. Many families’ income has become badly hit, with job losses, halved or unpaid wages, and in case of artisans, no income at all.
In response to the challenges bedeviling the society and armed with community information, we upgraded our food bank and activated the ‘Feed A Family Project’. The objective was to reach at least 10,000 families with food support for a week. The food package comprises of balanced meal packs of Rice, Garri, Beans, Egg, and Fruits.
Our focus group are women in families, single mothers, widows, the elderly, and artisans whose daily income has been badly affected by the pandemic-induced economic crisis. Based on support from well-meaning Nigerians locally and in the diaspora, we have so far been able to reach close to 1,000 families.
