In developing our Soup Kitchen project, we asked ourselves a very simple question: “Where can the hungry be found?” One answer was: “On the streets”.
Our Soup Kitchen project was borne out of a desire to provide breakfast for the hungry & homeless on the streets and under the bridges of Lagos State.
The breakfast pack is made up of oven-fresh bread, sardine, butter, milk, chocolate beverage and water.
On Thursdays and Fridays since 2005, we have fed tens of thousands of people.
The locations include: Ketu, Obalende, Apapa (by Leventis Motors), CMS, Agege, Ikeja, Oyingbo, Maryland, Palm Grove, Oko Baba Destitutes Home (Cripples & Blind sections), Victoria Island (Law school), Sabo and Adekunle.
