Our Bia Food Project delivers free food to individuals, families and community groups in the local area every week.
Our Tús team collect surplus food from Food Cloud and local supermarkets, pack it up at our distribution centre in Cornerstone Church at the Well and deliver it to individuals, families and local groups such as WH Five Loaves, Bray Women's Refuge and Sugarloaf Lion's Club - for redistribution to people in need.
The initiative started as a response to the COVID-19 crisis and has really illustrated how local community services and businesses can come together to support people in the community.
This work is supported through our SICAP programme.
"Without the help from the Bia Food Project, we would struggle to provide as much as we do – both to the service-users who benefit from cooked meals in our day centre, and also the people in need who use our food bank, where we have seen a big increase in demand in recent times."

"The food parcels provided by the Bia Food Project make a real difference to the families we support. With the recent increase in the cost of living, in some cases they are the only food in the house until pay day."
