Despite the notion that hunger was something we left behind way back in the 1800’s, food poverty is still a huge, yet almost hidden problem in modern day Ireland. 

  • Over 100,000 children go to bed hungry every night
  • 20% of parents regularly skip meals to feed their families 
  • The demand for food help increased by 70% as a result of Covid. 

As the cost of living soars in Ireland, these numbers are only set to skyrocket.

Famine Food Bank provides us with a stark reminder that hunger isn’t something we left behind 176 years ago.
