The World Bank has estimated that 8 out of every 10 Nigerians live on less than one dollar a day. This makes us a hungry nation. Many of these, largely comprised of women and children, the elderly, people with disabilities and the working poor-benefit from the food we provide through a network of non-profit emergency and community food programs. Our beneficiaries over the years have grown to include widows, children, rural women, students, unemployed youths, low income earners and the aged.
The life mission food bank is unique, in that we not only collect and distribute food to our network of emergency and community food programs, we also have the capacity to store and warehouse food on a large scale for regular scheduled deliveries. The variety and amount of food the food bank provides- including fresh produce and food for special dietary needs- allows food programs to plan balanced nutritious meals for the people who receive the food we distribute.
