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.
