Dundalk soup kitchen appeals for donations for Christmas

Up to 150 people collect food parcels every Friday morning

Dundalk soup kitchen appeals for donations for Christmas

St. Patrick's Parish soup kitchens are appealing to people across Louth to donate food items to help out locals in need this Christmas. 

Any non-perishable food items can be dropped into the parish office Monday to Friday 9.30am to 5.15pm or St Patricks & St Nicholas' Church during mass times.

Speaking to the Dundalk Democrat recently Rose Bailey, a volunteer at the local soup kitchen said: "Unfortunately the need for the service has grown hence the need for our other service, the food parcels, where up to 150 people collect a food parcel every Friday morning. It's very sad to see all age groups needing this service.

"Dundalk people are very generous going by the appeals we put out when our food supply dwindles. Within days we have callers to the parish office with donations. Our non-perishable food appeal has started where anyone can donate items."

St Nicholas' Monday to Friday 9am, Saturday 9am & 6.30pm & Sunday 8.30am. 10.30 am & 12noon.

Indeed if anyone is in need please call to the back of St Patricks Church on a Friday morning from 10.30am to 11.30am where they can receive a food parcel.
