Food Appeal

Give a family in your community a Christmas to remember!

Last year thousands of families across Ireland celebrated Christmas because of help from people like you.

Unfortunately, this Christmas even more families will need help to put food on the table.

You can help this Christmas. Please support the SVP Food Appeal. 

The idea is simple… 

  1. We provide you with a shopping list of non-perishable festive food items.
  2. You buy the items on the list, ensuring that expiry dates are non-perishable and have an expiry date well into 2019.
  3. When your collection is over, drop the food to your local Regional Office or drop off point.
  4. All food will be distributed out to the people who need it most in communities across Ireland, through our network of local Conferences and volunteers.

Have a look at our Food Appeal Guidelines for more information.
