The mission of the Lekki Food Bank is to reduce food insecurity in the communities around the Lekki area, by pooling resources to donate food to the less fortunate in our communities, while enlightening them about their health and safety, and empowering them to resist resorting to crime for their survival.
Our vision is to play a significant role in helping to ensure that every resident in the Lekki area has access to food daily, regardless of their socio-economic status.
This initiative is designed to feed the less privileged in the Lekki communities –especially the day to day earners- during the lockdown period resulting from COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the fore, the massive economic inequality in the country. Its effect is more profound on the poorer segments of society; the people who live day-to-day currently do not know where their next meal will come from; they are getting increasingly desperate, thereby increasing the likelihood that they turn to crime in order to provide for themselves and their families.
Lekki Food Bank was borne out of the need to address this immediate challenge, with a plan to continue to reduce food insecurity even after the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is over.
