Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu has launched a programme, tagged: “Food Kitchen” aimed at feeding 100,000 youths daily to cushion the effect of Coronavirus lockdown in the state.
The governor disclosed on Tuesday while giving coronavirus update at the Lagos House in Marina, Lagos Island.
Sanwo-Olu said, “In the next couple of days, we will commence a daily “Food Kitchen” programme which will see us aim to feed about 100,000 people daily.
“This will largely target the youths. We are identifying local food vendors who will pilot this programme and ensure that the process of cooking and serving of the meals adhere strictly to public health guidelines.”
The Governor also said the state was cleaning up data from various social registers to get a clean list of truly vulnerable and economically challenged persons.
“We aim to do these cash transfers by the end of the week to a minimum of 250,000 indigent citizens.”
