Helping to sustain the local community matters. It’s where people look out for each other. Supporting our local community and helping it to thrive is at the heart of our business in so many ways.
Incredible Edibles is a healthy eating and horticultural growing initiative, developed by Agri Aware for primary schools across Ireland, to educate children about growing fruit and vegetables, food origin, and the important role that fresh Irish produce plays in a healthy balanced diet. We’re delighted to support and play an active patron role in this initiative since it started in 2008.
FoodCloud is an incredible social enterprise and we’re more than happy to provide them and their charity partners with food donations each week ensuring no good food goes to waste. We believe that everyone should have access to a hot, nutritious meal every day and are very happy to be able to play even a small part.
