Sweet Sensation Food Security Intervention (SS FOSI) is a strategic response to COVID-19 in the area of food security, drawing on our strategic capabilities and leveraging the philanthropic spirit of the MD and CEO of Sweet Sensation, Mrs. Kehinde Kamson.
COVID-19, a deadly pandemic, has already wreaked health and economic havoc worldwide. It is evident that the impact on African economies, especially Nigeria, will be substantial.
A high percentage of Nigerians are casual or daily wage earners (with at least 45% of Nigerian’s being casual workers) and shutdown policies as well as the inevitable change in the business climate has rendered and will continue to render a high percentage of the population in Nigeria income less. Unfortunately, a high percentage of Nigerians will become food insecure and would require humanitarian assistance.
According to the World Food Program (WFP), COVID-19 will almost double the number of people facing food crises unless swift action is taken.
It has become evident that it is critical for our organisation to leverage its capabilities and existing food supply processes and chains in partnership with individuals and organisations to provide cooked meals and supplement the diets of as many of the underserved and vulnerable in our country as possible.
This initiative is consistent with the founder’s vision of accessible, available, affordable and high quality foods to society
Our goal is to provide 600,000 meals each month to the vulnerable and underserved in Nigeria through partnerships with organisations and individuals both inside and outside of Nigeria.
Sweet Sensation Food Security Intervention in partnership with Sweet Sensation Confectioneries Limited is uniquely equipped to contribute to closing this gap. We are known for:
