Crosscare has established two Food Banking Models

Our first bank (The Dublin Food Bank) was established in 1989 and has been designed to work collecting surplus food products from food producers, supermarkets, manufacturers etc. and then redistribute the donated product to over 70 charities working to help those marginalised, excluded and /or living in poverty. This bank will accept all products, from frozen foods right across to household and personal care products.

We can process full or part pallets of slightly damaged, short dated or surplus stocks and are fully indemnified accepting responsibility for product once removed from manufacture. This service has traditionally diverted close to 500ton per annum away from landfill and towards those most in need, by the end of 2013 we are estimating that this figure will have increased to over 750ton.

With the recent recession hitting communities so hard it was decided that a new model based within the very community it aimed to serve should be established and the Community Food Bank Model was created. These community food banks are unique as they are run by community volunteers who carry out local food drives to help people living within the immediate area.
