Indomie Targets 2m Underprivileged Nigerians With Free Meals

Dufil Prima Foods Limited continued its nationwide provision of free lunch to school children, and donation of free cartons of the product to the underprivileged. This, it said, is a demonstration of its commitment to support the most vulnerable in the society and help them cushion the effects of the current economic hardship, The company also said it hopes to feed at least two million Nigerians through the initiative. The initiative, a partnership with several non-governmental organisations, was flagged off on March 23, 2024.

The latest donations, carried out in partnership with ‘Dreams From The Slum Empowerment Initiative’, an Ajegunle-based NGO and Lagos Food Bank Initiative in Oworonshoki, witnessed the provision of free Indomie noodle meals to all students and pupils of four schools in the Ajegunle area, as well as the distribution of free cartons of Indomie Noodles to hundreds of Nigerians in the two communities.

Speaking at the presentation of the Indomie Noodles lunch, and free Indomie Noodles cartons, the Group Corporate
Communications and Events Manager, Dufil Prima Foods, Temitope Ashiwaju, reiterated the brand’s commitment to
helping the needy in the society and also complementing government’s efforts to curb hunger in some indigent communities around the nation.

“At Indomie, this is what we have decided; to go into different communities all over the country to give them some kind of intervention by providing free feeding to schools, and also giving out cartons of noodles to people in our communities.

“We know that we probably will not be able to solve all the problems at a time, but we know that little by little, if we continue like this, we will give some succour to a good number of people, and put smiles on the faces of Nigerian, as we hope that things will gradually get better.

That is our prayer, and as a brand we have decided that today we will come to Oworonshoki community, and that is why we are here, just as we have been to communities in Ojodu and Ajegunle in the past few days,” he said.

Ashiwaju further noted that Indomie’s kindness is not just stopping at the communities already visited. It is a
continuous thing for us, and it is free of charge. Nobody is going to ask you to pay

‘Our target is to reach out to two million vulnerable people and the initiative will be done in the six geopolitical zones in Nigeria,’ he added.

The founder, Dreams From The Slum Empowerment Initiative, Isaac Omoyele expressed delight at the opportunity to join Indomie Noodles to put smiles on the faces of children and the vulnerable members of his Ajegunle community, especially now that the prices of food
has risen beyond the reach of most Nigerians.

Speaking in the same vein, the president/executive director, Lagos Food Bank Initiative, Michael Sunbola, lauded the partnership to feed the vulnerable, saying “we believe this is going to unlock a whole room of opportunities for collaboration.”
