Many Nigerians aged 60 and over want to be enjoying their retirement. Instead, many struggles because of food insecurity. To better understand the complex relationships between food insecurity, older age, and other related factors, The Samaritans Foundation believes that hunger among the senior population aged 50-59 and those aged 60 and above.
We live in a land of plenty. We live in a land blessed with an abundance of nutritious food. But, we also live in a land where there is poverty and hunger and limited access to that bounty of food. We live in a land where we throw away almost 40% of the food we have and yet millions of seniors wonder whether they will be able to count on eating tomorrow.
Somebody can change all that, come along and let’s all succeed together!
Hunger has no boundaries. It affects millions of children, seniors, and households in communities across the country. That’s why The Samaritans Foundation has programs to reach children, seniors, and families no matter where they live or spend time. At senior centres or schools, in the city or countryside, The Samaritans Foundation network gets food to people where ever they are and whenever they need it most.
The Samaritans Foundation network of food pantries and food programs helps millions of people find food in their communities every week.
