Hundreds of Lagos residents recently showed up at Old English Bakery to be served bread at no cost.
The event, which was part of the Lagos State Government’s drive to end hunger in the land, was made possible by the collaborative efforts of Governor Babjide Sanwo-Olu’s special adviser on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Lekan Fatodu and Old English Bakery CEO Akogun Lanre Alfred.
As it turns out, Goal 2 of the SDGs is “Zero Hunger”. The October 2 event, during which free bread was provided to all attendees was, therefore, in order, beneficiaries said.
The event was also part of the Lagos SDGs Week organised by Fatodu’s team.

The programme, Fatodu said, was “supported by the Old English Bakery to emphasise the interest of the organisation in Goal 2 – Zero Hunger of the SDGs and to stimulate citizen commitment towards the attainment of the SDGs”.
“Special thanks to my wonderful friend and brother, Akogun Lanre Alfred, the CEO of Old English Bakery, for his kind support towards the success of this initiative.
“A huge gratitude also goes to the entire team of Lagos State Office of the SDGs as well as other colleagues for their unflinching commitment and support,” Fatodu said.
