Our Bia Food Project provides free food to individuals and families in need in the local area – and community groups working with people facing food poverty.
The food is sourced via FoodCloud, who deliver surplus food from supermarkets weekly to our BIA centre for redistribution in the community.
The project provides food to more than 60 local families every week and groups such as Wicklow Homeless Five Loaves, Bray Community Addiction Team and Bray Women’s Refuge, for redistribution to local people facing food poverty.
This work is supported through our SICAP programme and staffed with participants from our Tús Community Work Placement Scheme.
We are delighted that local recruitment company Eolas Recruitment has committed to provide funding to support Bia during 2024.
"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."
