We operate a monthly food bank the second Thursday of every month from 10am to 1pm. We provide healthy non-perishable food parcels of approximately 12 items per pack. If you would like to receive a pack please phone and register with the service so that we can send you a text reminder and relevant information.
The food supports are funded by European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) Food & Basic Material Support which supports people take their first steps out of poverty and social exclusion.
90% of the funding comes from the EU with the balance of funding coming from the Irish Exchequer.The Department of Social Protection manages this programme in Ireland.
Hospital FRC have also received funding support from Community Foundation Ireland Toy Show Appeal, Redemptorist PHF, Tusla and through donations to the service. Staff and volunteers support the delivery of this service.
FEAD Ireland is funded by European and Irish exchequer funding. The Department of Social Protection is the managing authority of FEAD in Ireland, and also responsible for its implementation.
The programme has proved an invaluable resource for families and individuals availing of supports through Hospital FRC. For further information on this progamme visit the FEAD website or email FEAD@welfare.ie.
