Food poverty, and the associated difficulties for those suffering this type of hardship, is a complex problem.

Over the years, we have invested resources to try to solve this issue. Our latest initiative is a social grocery which aims to not only improve individuals’ access to healthy food but offer them a holistic and empowering service.

The store proposed in Limerick City will be based on a social enterprise model, giving people the chance to buy groceries at heavily discounted prices. Just as importantly, a social grocery empowers clients, giving them the autonomy and choice that can be lacking when accessing a traditional food bank.

We also facilitate a range of skills and training courses, money management workshops, advice and information services, and cooking and food skills classes – all with the goal of giving people prospects to move themselves towards a self-sustainable future and increased financial stability.

We hope to open the Social Grocery in 2024.
