PLEASE PASS THE BREAD CORK
FOOD BANK – OPENING TO DEAL WITH THE HIDDEN POVERTY IN CORK CITY
Locally we have been doing an outreach to the homeless for the past three years. We go out once every week to reach out to those who are in need, giving out blankets, hats, scarfs, gloves, hot drinks and food. GMI’s aim is to facilitate, making connections,linking those in need to appropriate services such as rehabilitation centers. There are two people on our team that used to be homeless and now their lives have been completely transformed. One is in college and the other has a full time job.
We have noticed in the past three years that the need in our own community was increasing. This has lead us to open a food bank beginning this month. We have already received donations of food but Please Pass The Bread Cork is at its infancy stages and is set up to deal with the problem of hidden poverty.
If anyone would like to donate or sponsor us we would be extremely grateful. We are in the start off stages of this project. You can get tax back on your donation also.
If you would like to be a part of this project and would like more information please call us on 083 837 8068 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
