Take Away Hunger
Since our doors opened at Feed Cork in 2017, we have received a great deal of support from our partners at FEAD, FoodCloud, Tesco, and other local businesses. Due to their ongoing help we are able to distribute 250 well balanced, nutritious, food baskets to individuals and families in need on a weekly basis.
In addition to what is donated by our partners, Feed Cork supplements each basket with a weekly purchase of meat, vegetable, and dairy. We are able to purchase these food items at a discounted price through our partnership with local businesses and nonprofits.
How can you help?
For the low cost of a €3 takeaway coffee, Feed Cork is able to purchase a meat, vegetable, and dairy product to place in a food basket that will feed a family for two to three days.
