The Mission of United Calabass is to Mobilize Resources to Fight Hunger in our Community. We receive our donations within Lagos by sending our drivers to donors for direct pick up of donated items. We need cars to enable us reach all our donors from different locations.

Our vision is to be the leader in the fight against hunger by ensuring that no one goes hungry around us. To fulfill our mission, we source, acquire and distribute food, and other products to needy people with the help of partnering agencies and Food Bank programs. We also intend to conduct hunger education and awareness campaigns and advocate for public policies that alleviate hunger.
