While the Nigerian government implemented curfews and lockdown measures, Lagos Food Bank Initiative’s operations have increased greatly since the pandemic started. With the increase in demand for its food assistance services, the food bank is feeding an additional 220,000 families. In particular, the food bank is targeting students at low-income private schools and is reaching out to young mothers and food-insecure children. Lagos Food Bank Initiative is working with local governments throughout Lagos state to help distribute food and other items to beneficiaries.
