The Food Bank Initiative (FBI) has, at the weekend, donated food items, such as bags of rice, vegetable oil, drinks and other condiments to some students of University of Abuja (UniAbuja) in Gwagwalada, to enable them celebrate Easter.
Presenting the food items to the students, a representative of FBI, Mr. Adewole Stephen, explained that the donation was part of the organisation’s corporate social responsibility, aimed at putting smiles on the faces of the downtrodden in the society.
Stephen explained that FBI was formed in 2014 as a platform to give back to the society, adding that its concept is to make the world a better place, noting that the only way to make the society better is for the wealthy people to give back in form of services.
According to him, “The idea of setting up the organisation dated back in 2014. And the whole concept behind the setting up of the Food Bank Initiative is to give back to the society from the small I have gathered. I believe the society will be a better place if the wealthy among us can throw back to the society by way of rendering services to the people,” he said.
Responding, the students thanked the organisation for remembering them, just as they called on other well meaning Nigerians to recognise the plight of students.
