No matter the religion you practice, we all need our daily bread from God. My inspiration came from God. Some people cannot put food on their table and some people have this in excess. This is why I and my team created this initiative which is to feed the hungry in order to keep their body and soul. The goal of our foundation is to touch people in their lowest. God is the giver of our daily bread all we do is assist. The big picture for us is to eradicate hunger in Nigeria and the world at large”.
