Naas Food Bank
‘Helping to feed the hidden hungry’
The food bank began in December 2012 as a pilot project, where initial response was very positive. Since September 2013, with fantastic support from the local community, our drop-in centre has been operating every week, where currently (July 2016) an average of 93 individuals and families access the service for help.
In Ireland, food poverty has emerged as an increasingly important issue; recent findings by the Department of Social Protection disclosed 10 percent of the population in Ireland are living in food poverty.
Facts about food poverty in Ireland:
1 in 4 of the population lives in deprivation. 1 in 7 of those at risk of poverty have a job, 750,000 people live very close to the breadline.
Today people across Ireland struggle to feed themselves and their families. Redundancy, illness, benefit delay, domestic violence, debt, family breakdown and paying for the additional household costs are just some of the reasons why people go hungry.
This is a strictly no alcohol event
Refreshments will be available on the night with all proceeds going to Naas Main Street Food Bank.
