Dundrum Food Bank

Dundrum Methodist Church is proud to be working with the charity, Crosscare, to provide this vital new service for our community.

Crosscare was established over seventy years ago and its primary function then was to address the effects of food poverty on the population. Crosscare established its Food Banking structure over thirty years ago and now annually diverts over 850 tonnes of food from landfill and redirects it to those most in need.

We often consider third world nations when talking about food hunger yet over 10% of people in Ireland are affected by food poverty, which means that they simply cannot afford to provide themselves and their families with the recommended daily amounts of food. People finding themselves at risk of food poverty include those living alone; families on low incomes; single parents and families with three or more children.

A Community Food Bank collects and stores food for distribution to individuals and/or families affected by food poverty within a local community. The aim is to provide quality, nutritional food to those identified as “in need”.

Although the primary aim is to provide food, information on rights and entitlements are shared with service users when appropriate in particular, when it is felt it could address the underlying social causes of hunger.

Our community run food bank is operating out of Dundrum Methodist Church and serves (although not exclusively) the areas of Dundrum, Ballinteer, Balally, Sandyford, Churchtown and Goatstown.

We work to resource and redistribute surplus food to those most in need in our local community. We also ask local groups to hold food drives to help. We then add our food drive collections to the Crosscare food parcels which are distributed once a week. At present we have 35 families coming each week.

If you would like to buy any of the items from the list below and leave them in the designated boxes in the church foyer they will be gratefully received and appreciated.
