Muslim Sisters of Éire is one of the organisations featured in Tesco Ireland’s ‘Little Helps’ campaign that is highlighting many local organisations that are delivering vital support to communities in need all across Ireland every day.

The Muslim Sisters of Éire organisation was established in 2010 by Lorraine O’Connor, who aspired to create a space for Muslim women in Ireland to come together to provide support to women, encourage integration and work together to benefit the wider society. 

The organisation supports those in need by hosting regular food runs outside Dublin city centre’s GPO, serving an average of 500 people every Friday night. 

Tesco is attempting to reduce waste at every point in its supply chain, including farms, stores and in customer homes. Working with FoodCloud and over 380 local charitable groups, the retailer redistributes perfectly edible surplus food at the end of each day to community groups and causes in need.

To date, through its surplus food donations programme, powered by FoodCloud, Tesco has donated just over 79,000 meals to help Muslim Sisters of Éire in its work.
