Food Project Initiated by The FutureHope Empowerment UK & Josiah FutureHope Empowerment Foundation Nigeria.
Ile-Ife Community Food Bank (Osun State, Nigeria)! At our first opening day, over 60 older people aged 70 and over were registered and a food package contains 10 food items: 2Kg of Rice, 2Kg of Red Beans, 2Kg of Garri, bottle of vegetable oil, two tins of Geisha, one box of Cornflakes, half dozen of Chicken Indomie, twelve sachets of mixed tomato, pepper and onion sauces, Milo and Dano Cool Milk were distributed to each beneficiary. They left feeling differently to when they arrived; they went away having had their dignity restored and hope revived.
Many beneficiaries testify how the FoodBank Bimonthly services would assist them at the point of their needs. Practically, we are running the FoodBank services every month, the older people aged 70 and over are group into two sets. Each set will be receiving our food package alternatively monthly.

The ongoing research on food insecurity and food poverty amongst average Nigerian pensioners, “The FutureHopeEmpowerment UK and Josiah FutureHopeEmpowerment foundation Nigeria” have analysed survey data and interviewed pensioners who are aged people in our chosen geographical location, who have little or no strength to begin activating new streams of income.
Our findings reveal that pension that is defined as a regular payment made to people who have retired from service, having attained the official retirement age has not been paid for several months and many of the aged people are at risk of under-nutrition as a result of poverty, or not timely receiving their regular payment to enable them purchase food items.
Data survey collected shows that aged people in the targeted age group are in persistent food poverty. The risk of under-nutrition, a major cause of declination of functional organs among aged people.
Our intervention is to prevent poorer health outcomes, falls, and delays in recovery from illness.
In our work to serve the senior citizens of the targeted age group, the mission is to offer good quality and highly nutritious food and beverages for sustainable health benefit.
Our commitments are:
We are committed to continuing developing and delivering dignified service to prevent food poverty among the targeted age group.
*To treat targeted age group in food poverty with dignity and respect.
*To understand the scale of the problem in order that we can address it more effectively.
*To develop a strong partnership approach to reduce food poverty.
