BLG Set to Feed Additional 7,000 Youths

Mr. Olusegun Onilude, Chairman, Badagry Local Government has said his government has plans to feed additional 7,000 youths and children across the local council area through the “Sanwoolu Food Kitchen”.

The council helmsman mentioned this after the success of the council’s first phase of support to the “Sanwoolu Food Kitchen”, an initiative of the Lagos State Governor to provide cooked food to youths across the state as a means of providing succor and stopping the spread of the Covid-19 virus in the state.

Onilude had said during the flag-off of the food support initiative that the exercise was to complement the good effort of Mr. Babajide Sanwoolu to ensure that food reach otherwise unreached youths and children in his local government area.

The Council Chairman  mentioned, last week that the first phase catered for 7,000 youths across all the wards in the council.

”The ten wards are divided into 35 locations of 200 youths per location. This means 7,000 youths will be offered free meals in the first phase of the programme. This feeding programme of the local government is meant to cater for the youths at the locations who could not benefit from the state government’s Free Youths Feeding Programme .

The essence of this programme is also to empower our local food vendors and put food on the tables of our youths that are probably out of work at this period of partial lockdown and fasting,” he said.
