Community Food Programme

For the past number of weeks Robert Emmet CDP have provided a ‘Community Food Programme’ to individuals and families affected by Covid-19 related food poverty in Dublin 8 and surrounding areas.

We have worked alongside a variety of organisations- schools, restaurants, sports clubs, charities and residents associations- to provide and deliver c220 food parcels and 250 dinners to community members in need each week.

None of what we do would be possible without our wonderful team of volunteers- 22 kind souls (over 100 kind individuals applied to volunteer in the first 24 hours!) who donate their time and talents to make our work possible.

It’s been a real privilege for us to lean in on the kindness that exists in our community and put together a tangible response to a tragic pandemic.

Over the next couple of weeks, if they are not too shy, we will share some of our volunteer stories on our our social media to give a sense of the kindness, compassion and resilience that exists everywhere around us!
