FoodClique Support Initiative will celebrate World Food Day on October 16, by feeding 2,000 people.

The theme for this year’s World Food Day; “Climate is changing. Food and agriculture must too” is aimed at tackling one of the biggest issues related to climate change – food security.

The world’s poorest – many of whom are farmers, fishers and pastoralists – are being hit hardest by higher temperatures and an increasing frequency in weather-related disasters. At the same time, the global population is growing steadily and is expected to reach 9.6 billion by 2050.

To meet such a heavy demand, agriculture and food systems will need to adapt to the adverse effects of climate change and become more resilient, productive and sustainable. This is the only way that we can ensure the well-being of ecosystems and rural populations and reduce emissions.

A Symposium will be held on Saturday October 16, to mark this year’s event and it would hold at 302A, Muritala Way, Yaba, Lagos.

Also at the event would be a launching in conjunction with Amplify Digital Agency ‘The Social Meals’ – a platform that will use social media timelines to provide meals for less privileged children and families.

There will be an outreach at the Makoko community on Sunday 16th October where we hope to provide nutritious meals to many disadvantaged families and children.

These NGOs hope to reach as many families as possible and a louder voice given to the action and advocacy against chronic hunger will receive.

Interested volunteers can send a mail to [email protected] or call FoodClique on 07089374896.

“An estimated 617,000 children in northeast Nigeria are suffering from acute malnutrition.”
