A weekly service will see 10,000 food boxes being delivered to the most vulnerable during the Covid-19 lockdown. If you have received a letter from your GP and you have been asked to shield during the pandemic you may be able to get a weekly food box delivered to your home. Food boxes are available for people who cannot afford food and who do not have a support network of family and friends to help them through this emergency. These boxes will also be available to those who are not shielding, but who are in critical need of food including families and older citizens.
If you feel you may qualify for a weekly food box you can contact the Covod-19 Community helpline who will carry out an assessment to see if you are able to avail of a food box. Your details will then be passed on to partners in the Health Trusts and/or local Councils who will arrange delivery of your weeklt food box.
