In celebration of the country’s food, agriculture, innovation, and sustainability, the Intergenerational Rescue Foundation (IRF) has started preparation for Agroween 2024.

According to a statement signed by the Chief Operating Officer of IRF, Mrs. Bimbola Bolaji-Aghahowa, Agroween is a revolutionary initiative that aims to address food insecurity, shortages, wastage, and hunger while promoting agriculture and sustainable farming practices.

“Agroween 2024 promises to be an exciting and impactful event, featuring exhibitions, equipment displays, parades, and interactive sessions on sustainable agricultural practices,” she noted.

Bolaji-Aghahowa stated that the event would bring together stakeholders in the food and agricultural industries, including young farmers, researchers, food entrepreneurs, and agribusinesses.

“We aim to inspire a new generation of farmers, entrepreneurs, and sustainability advocates, ultimately contributing to a food-secure and sustainable future,” said the IRF COO.

She disclosed that during the 2024 Agroween, exhibitors will display their harvest, food, or farm produce and participate in a bazaar, subsidised sale, auction, or donation to Agroween food pantries stationed in our member schools or other community food pantries of choice, adding that the top five exhibitors will receive special category prizes worth millions of naira.

She said that the annual event will take place on a date to be announced soon.

“Agroween is open to all, including schools, agribusinesses, food entrepreneurs, food and beverage companies, and other individuals or agriculture enthusiasts who have invested in food and agriculture in any capacity. In whatever capacity you have been investing in food and agriculture, it is your time to get rewarded as you come on board this festive-like, innovative, and fun-filled event. Register now at www.intergenerationalrescue.com or www.intergenerational.org and stay tuned for the date and venue announcement,” Bolaji-Aghahowa declared.

Intergenerational Rescue Foundation (IRF) is a non-profit organisation with a dual mission: to make a meaningful difference in the lives of both the youth and the elderly, alleviate poverty, and provide assistance to marginalised communities.
Its unique identity also encompasses its role as a dedicated human and social research centre and represents the bridge between generations, often referred to as the “sandwich generation.”

This distinctive position means that it is entrusted with a multitude of responsibilities and assignments, all of which it eagerly embraces.
