All through six gruesome weeks of COVID-19 lockdown in Nigeria, even as Federal and State governments bungled the grinding task of sharing palliatives to the country’s most vulnerable masses, one strategic collaboration between non-government organisations stood out as it fed over 25,000 people across Lagos State and its immediate environs.

Leveraging on the expertise gained from 11 years of battling hunger through their community kitchen, free school meals, family meals and zero hunger programs , FoodClique Support Initiative led by its CEO, Bolajoko Fadipe partnered with Noella Foundation led by Seyi Tinubu through the “We are #strongertogether campaign” to neatly packed edibles (dry cook-able foods) in print-branded brown cartons and expertly despatched by our tirelessly volunteers in buses, cars, motorbikes and bicycles to locations both near and far flung from the NGO’s operational base in Yaba, Lagos State.

FoodClique and Noella Foundation COVID-19 exploits in helping government combat hunger among the helpless, drew the attention of Nigeria’s Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, who commended the charity organisation via video conferencing in March 2020 with Bolajoko Fadipe. The FoodClique/Noella Foundation volunteers also got invited to the Lagos State Government House in April 2020 where they got the commendation of Governor Babajide Sanwoolu, his wife and his COVID-19 workforce.

In a media statement issued by Dr. Kunle Hamilton, a FoodClique partner and communication consultant, Fadipe explained how the FoodClique idea was born 11 years ago and the new strategic partnerships that have helped them fight hunger in the land thanks to their volunteers.

“On my birthday 11 years ago, instead of rejoicing with friends, I felt a stronger urge to feed the poor and homeless and that’s exactly what I did. Fast forward to March 2020, at FoodClique, we were still contemplating our usual free community kitchen for the less privileged, until the realities of COVID-19 hit all of us.

“Our slogan at FoodClique is that hunger has a voice and with COVID-19, we heard hunger’s voice loud and clear. And we are grateful to God for the partnership of Noella Foundation chaired by Mr. Seyi Tinubu whose financial commitment and enormous goodwill extended our capacity to feed tens of thousands of vulnerable Nigerians.”

Speaking about the commitment of Noella Foundation to this humanitarian gesture, Seyi Tinubu said “It is our duty to give back to the society and I’m always hands on to help because I know the situation we are in right now is not an easy one, especially for business owners. But with our collective effort, we will achieve a lot more.”

Confident and excited, FoodClique CEO Fadipe concluded by saying, “We are grateful to God that after 11 years of our transparency and commitment to feeding the vulnerable in our society thanks to our volunteers, a good number of organisations have teamed up with FoodClique to help us defeat hunger in our land.

“Throughout the COVID-19 lockdown, we have been packing and distributing food boxes from the sanitized auditorium of CCC PraiseVille and ShaddaiVille Ministries at no cost. We could not have meet the growing number of daily emergency boxes without our partners, donors, volunteers and Praiseville ; a venue used for Church service but for now , it has become a vital link in the distribution chain for our emergency food boxes for the vulnerable in the society . Indeed, we are stronger together and this is what must define us as Nigerians at this crucial time in our history.”

FoodClique and Noella Foundation food boxes got to communities like Spencer and Borno Way in Yaba, Makoko, Ebute Metta, Akoka, Iponri, Lagos Island, Bariga, Agege, Epe, Badagry, Ikorodu, Alimosho, Igando, Igbogbo, Festac, Oshodi, Ikotun, Ojuelegba, Surulere, Ijede, Ajah, Ojo, Iyana Ipaja among others

Bottle king is one of the foremost online retailers of soft drinks and alcohol in Nigeria. The brand has always been about building community through love and shared service. The organization partnered with foodclique support initiative to nourish its monthly community kitchen programs.

The brand would be providing water and other soft drinks at every community kitchen outreach as well as providing food relief boxes to lucky vulnerable families that visits the outreach location.

Foodclique is very grateful for this collaboration as it would further strengthen the impact of the project at benefitting vulnerable communities.

Anne Frank once said that Hunger is not a problem, it is an obscenity, I couldn’t agree more. Hunger is a universal concept that has taken roots in every nation, wherever you find a lot of people, you will discover even more hungry people. When we listen to the news and hear reports of how the government or some organizations spend billions to fight hunger, we often feel a sense of sympathy for “those” who are hungry. Subconsciously, we feel it is their problem and not ours. This nonchalant attitude has become the bedrock on which the misconception of hunger is founded upon.
