    Is It Right To Serve Food During Funerals? Let’s Discuss

    Food During Funerals

    Our forefathers used to perform funerals on a shoestring budget to relieve some of the financial strain on their families. There were a few funeral arrangements to make, such as the coffin and mortuary expenses.

    As a result, many found it to be very simple and stress-free. In our modern world, the same low-cost funeral has suddenly become highly challenging and a fashion statement. These days, a family needs to spend a significant amount of money to fulfil the ultimate funeral ceremonies for their loved ones. The expense of maintaining the corpse at the morgue alone is sufficient capital for someone to start a family company.

    When a person dies in Nigeria, a number of duties must be done before the body can be placed to rest peacefully. If the family is in financial distress, funds are borrowed from a bank before the burial may take place. To avoid issues with the borrower, the borrowed money is distributed among the family members.

    Most funeral homes also charge a minimum service fee that can run into the hundreds of thousands of Naira. Not to mention the expenditures of canopies, chairs, soft and hard drinks, sound systems, grave digging fees, church services, ambulance fees, one-week and one-year observation periods, pallbearers, and other expenses that may be incurred. The cost involved in food preparation during funerals in Nigeria is not something to be happy about.

    What are your thoughts on spending so much money to serve food during funerals?

      As far as burial is concern, people will continue to eat food. It is sacrosanct to eat during burial here.

      Africans and misplaced priorities, some people in the burial are just there for the food and not to mourn with the family

      Food during funeral is a must. People don’t joke with food especially in Nigeria.

      Eating food during the funeral is a long age tradition. Like what people normally say, “you don’t shift the boundary of the land”. It a normal stuff anyway…
