Community Gardaí Supporting the most vulnerable in Ireland

Takeaway food delivery services are available but if you are in a high risk category, or know someone who is, there are supports available in the community to aid you in these challenging times.  Please contact your local Garda Station and ask for the Community Garda Support team who will assist you. You can find a full list of all Garda Stations here https://www.garda.ie/en/Contact-Us/Station-Directory/  

There are a number of food projects throughout the country supporting the most in need. In the immediate vicinity of the Cathedral these include:

Robert Emmet Community Development Project

The RECDP offers a free meal delivery service to community members in need during these difficult times together with their community partners in www.Slunchbox.com. 

Slunchbox were concerned about the additional pressure on families of school age children who would normally be fed daily as part of their participation on programmes like Robert Emmet CDP afterschool project and started a free meal service to meet these needs. This service is a reaction to the Covid-19 emergency and has not received any central funding to date; it is wholly reliant on voluntary donations.  The need for this service has grown and currently far outstrips the 27 meals Robert Emmet CDP are delivering on a daily basis.
