Food Bank: is an initiative of Maboshe Memorial Centre (MMC) to provide a co-ordinated central logistical infrastructure that collects (rescues) edible food from manufacturers and retailers, and ensures that this food is redistributed to help feed thousands of hungry people every day.
MMC aims to raise tons of food, which will be distributed to orphanages, old aged homes, homes for the disabled, shelters for abused women, children and youth development centres in Western, Zambia. Shoppers can purchase non-perishable foods at any shops and drop donations off at the MMC stand.
The organisation is also challenging companies and schools to get involved by holding their own food drives. Those unable to visit the malls can make a donation to the organisation.
Maboshe Memorial Centre (MMC) through its food bank distributes food to those who have difficulty purchasing enough to avoid hunger.
In Mongu district, our food bank usually operates on the "warehouse" model. They act as food storage and distribution depots and give out food directly to the hungry. After the food is collected, sorted, and reviewed for quality, these food are kept in our banks distribute it to the hungry, including members of public who are hungry, homeless, orphanages, and schools.
Maboshe Memorial Centre (MMC) unites, empowers and supports the hungry in need by reducing food waste and cultivating sustainable relationships that save lives. We collaborate with these organizations to strengthen the effort to defeat hunger by launching new food banks and elevating their work with increased efficiency, safety, and availability.
We fight hunger by gathering and distributing food, engaging in partnerships that advance self-sufficiency, and by providing community leadership on issues related to hunger.
