The Lagos State Universal Basic Education Board (LASUBEB) has disclosed its readiness to commence distribution of food to primary school pupils at home.
The chairman of the board, Mr. Wahab Alawiye-King, who disclosed this when he visited the warehouse where the food palliatives were kept in Ikeja, described the initiative as part of the presidential directive that the home-grown school feeding programme must continue in spite of school closure. Alawiye-King disclosed that over 37,589 homes were being targeted for the pilot scheme of the programme.
According to him, 202 centres have been designated for the distribution of food packages which include 5kg of rice, 5kg of beans, two rolls of sachet tomato paste, 500ml of palm and groundnut oil, salt and 12 eggs. (Text, photo by Daily Trust)
