In that time, FoodCloud have distributed the equivalent of 2.3 million meals to those most in need.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Despite the generosity of FoodCloud’s supporters and partners, they are struggling to meet the growing demand. That is why, from September 17th to 20th, Derek Downe’s EUROSPAR Rathkeale, Mark Nagle’s EUROSPAR Bruff and the Furey Smyth’s EUROSPAR Newmarket-on-Fergus will be asking their shoppers to donate much needed non-perishable food, which will then be redistributed directly by FoodCloud to charities across Limerick and Ireland.The ambition of this appeal is to ensure that no-one goes hungry during the Covid-19 pandemic, especially the hundreds and thousands of vulnerable families and people in communities across our Island.We can all do our bit to alleviate the pain and suffering of those in our communities and the three Limerick based EUROSPAR Supermarkets are proud to be a part of this initiative.While shopping in your EUROSPAR Supermarket, shoppers are asked to add non-perishable items such as breakfast cereals, cooking sauces, hot drinks, rice and pasta, tinned soups and beans, and tinned fruits including tomatoes to their trolley.Shoppers will then pay for their groceries in the normal way and then donate whatever they wish by placing it in the trolley or receptacle designated for the ‘Food For Ireland’ appeal.Commenting Malachy Hanberry, EUROSPAR Managing Director said: “These three EUROSPAR Retailers have a long tradition of supporting charities and those most vulnerable in our society. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis they have been providing their shoppers and local communities with a safe and healthy shopping environment and their support of this initiative is another example of their commitment to the communities they serve.” LimerickNewsLocal Limerick EUROSPAR Supermarkets support national food campaignBy Meghann Scully – September 14, 2020 179 Print Twitter FROM September 17th until 20th three Limerick EUROSPAR Supermarkets will be supporting a new charity initiative called ‘Food For Ireland’, which is aimed at addressing the unprecedented demand on charities and communities across Ireland affected by Covid-19.
