Clondalkin Cares Foodbank has joined the FEAD programme and now has a secure supply to support 450 people with essential food this year, writes Kim O’Leary.
The Fund for European Aid to the most Deprived (FEAD) is an EU-wide programme to help people take their first steps out of poverty and social exclusion, and many Irish charities have joined in recent years.
Meanwhile the Clondalkin Cares Foodbank is appealing for people to continue to donate tinned goods to their foodbank.
“We welcome all food items as long as they are non-perishable, at least one month in date, and in unbroken and undamaged packaging. For the next 5 weeks we especially welcome tinned meatballs and other tinned meats, juices and cordials, marmalade and jam, biscuits, and coffee.
We need to the whole community to get involved so we can support those who need it the most,” they said in a statement.
Anyone who wants to donate to the Clondalkin Cares Foodbank or who needs assistance can call them on 085 2020300 or email [email protected]
