Food Bank Project

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.

Scholarships and Other Programmes

We have awarded scholarships to some orphans, students and pupils who really wanted to be in school but did not have sponsorship from anywhere. Among them are 100 pupils from Prince Academy Nursery/Primary School, Gidan Zakara, Karshi Development Area Nasarawa State. We also embark on educational seminars and give some bright students who cannot sponsor themselves to school, opportunities for essay competitions where we spot them and award scholarships to them, this we do in collaboration with other educational bodies.

From our food bank, we have been able to give emergency food relief to many rural women, widows orphans, less privileged and the needy. Among them were 50 widows adopted from kado village, these women were given rice, tin tomatoes, salt and magi.
