Food Provision Scheme


The Children’s Rights Alliance, with funding from the Bank of Ireland, established a food provision scheme to support the nutritional needs for children under the age of 6 years experiencing poverty and deprivation during the Covid-19 crisis.

The initiative targeted young children that are not already benefiting from sufficient direct food provision through another organisation or programme, or where their current provider is struggling to address need, 7 days a week for 4 weeks.

The programme focused on the provision of hot meals where possible as this is what young children prefer.
