Ethos & Mission
We believe that no one should ever go hungry. At Donegal Food Response Network, our mission is to be a sustainable, effective network of community and voluntary organisations whose shared objective is to address food poverty in Donegal. We are working towards becoming a countywide network that provides opportunities for shared learning and securing countywide applications to raise awareness, strengthen the network and support people experiencing food poverty.
What We Do
Donegal Food Response was set up to help those who are struggling to make ends meet and find themselves having to make difficult choices between essential basic needs such as food. Food poverty is an ever-growing problem in Ireland and our aim is to support Donegal families by providing nutritious food and meals.
Be A Volunteer
Food poverty is an ever-growing problem in our society and there’s been a significant increase in the number of families and individuals around the county who are affected. With the cost-of-living crisis, people are having to choose between essential basic needs, which is why donating to your local food bank or getting involved in whatever way you can is more important than ever. All donations, no matter how big or small, make a huge difference on the service and number of families and people we’re able to help. We have noticed a significant increase in the number of people who are coming to us to avail of the service and some days we have queues going out the door. We want people to know we are here for them and that we can help them with accessing food. The Donegal Food Response Network members are based in rural locations throughout Donegal, which means more people can access food in their own area discretely and confidentially.
