FOOD AND NUTRITION

The Food and Agriculture Organization FAO estimates in its 2050 – Africa’s food challenge report that Some 218 million people in Africa, around 30 percent of the total population, are estimated to be suffering from chronic hunger and malnutrition.

In the communities that we target to serve, we estimate the figures to about 40% or more.

The biggest reason people are hungry, both in Africa and around the world, is poverty.

There are many people living in impoverished communities in Nigeria who do not have enough food to eat; where hundreds of families struggle to get enough food to feed the usually many mouths, and children can't always get the adequate quality and quantity of food they need to stay healthy.

That is why ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION has as one of its core mandates, the provision of healthy meals, and quality food items to poor communities, especially women and children.

We believe that by providing food and nourishment to the less privilege in a compassionate way, we facilitate better health and reduce the incidence of diseases in these communities.

ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION food programs are currently executed through 2 initiatives:

Free Meals Interventions

ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION provides meals to the underprivileged especially orphanages and through it’s Free Meals Program which is designed to expand from a few pilot communities to at least 500 rural communities and urban slums that critically needs humanitarian food interventions.

In its free meal programs, ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION serve cooked meals rich in essential nutrients and a drink – usually water or any other healthy, donor supplied beverage.

The meals are prepared by ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION Volunteers in clean and hygienic environments, packaged, and taken to the location where they will be shared to the beneficiaries with no expectation from the beneficiaries.

Whole Food Donations

The Whole Food Donations Program targets underprivileged families especially in urban slums, where one or both parents are unemployed or underemployed, with several children.

ADENRELE LEKAN-SALAMI FOUNDATION gives out packed, uncooked food bags usually containing enough food and condiments to last a week.

The food is sourced in cash and kind from individual and corporate donors, sorted, and packed in bags for onward distribution to recipients.

Our research shows that most households in our target communities are single parent families – usually a mother who is at-risk to engage in anti-social activities to meet the food needs of her family.

Our objective is to use the whole food donation program to reduce the chances of such families engaging in crime to be able to afford feeding their households.
