Foodshare Kerry


Foodshare Kerry ,is an initiative of North & East Kerry Development and Saint Vincent de Paul. It is an independent not-for-profit social organisation set up to help local charity groups combat food poverty. We rescue quality surplus food from supermarkets and food producers and make it available to organisations who know how best to redistribute it to those in need. The Objective : To support people living in food poverty in the North Kerry Area by linking food suppliers who have waste food with clients who require food The Rationale :There is demand: A recent report state 1 in 9 in the County live in food poverty (impact report on food poverty) The high number of people in debt, low wage growth and high unemployment are all contributing to income pressure which contributes to food poverty. There is also a potential supply: Tonnes of food are dumped every year .Food suppliers attempt to reduce waste but nonetheless incur costs in dumping unwanted food
