Good Grub Initiative

Well done to everyone involved in the Good Grub Initiative, a Covid-19 related response that has raised €500,000 to provide nutritious fresh food to families of Deis school children during Covid-19 school closures.

The project started by Denis O'Reilly / Begleys Fresh Produce Group has gained support from Glanmore Foods and others to provide a stunning 75,000 nutritious fruit and veg parcels free of charge to community members who need it most.

As the majority of Covid-19 related talk moves to national 'road maps to recovery' we must not neglect to consider, and mitigate against, the devastating social side effects- including food poverty- which are only now beginning to bite.

It’s the like of the Good Grub imitative- and the partnership this type of project forges between business and charity- that does this and creates ways of working that will ultimately allow communities to move on from Covid-19.

Well done to all involved.
