Dublin Diocesan Crosscare Food Appeal

In the weeks before Christmas last year the diocese launched a programme to replenish the stock of the Crosscare Food Banks.  These Food Banks give food directly to individuals and families in need through local community food banks and also to over 70 other charities in Dublin who are working with those most in need.

Overall last year, Crosscare redistributed over 750 tonnes of food.  This year the demand has doubled, and they expect to give our almost 1,200 tonnes of food. 

As  the Christmas season approaches, the Crosscare Food Banks have once again been struggling to keep up with the demand for food from people around the Archdiocese.

In response to this growing need Archbishop Diarmuid Martin has asked parishes to bring non perishable food items to the Masses in their local parish church on the weekend of 6th & 7th December.  Last year our parishioners were very generous to this non perishable food item appeal which meant so much to families over the Christmas period and beyond.
