Cork Penny Dinners Christmas Appeal


Often a cup of tea, a handshake, and a friendly chat can go a long way. Cork Penny Dinners works every day to provide freshly made meals and a warm atmosphere to the homeless and to those in need in Cork City. Their services are free of charge.

This Christmas, Cork CIL has chosen to support Cork Penny Dinners instead of posting seasonal greetings cards. If you would like to join our effort for this worthy cause, donations of non-perishable foods, kitchen items, and warm clothing, would be greatly appreciated.

We can arrange to collect your donation, or perhaps you could drop it off at the office by Mon, Dec 16th, 2019. We will make sure all donations to Cork CIL will reach Cork Penny Dinners before the Christmas holidays.

Cork Penny Dinners takes donations of items such as:

Non-perishable Food Items
gravy granules, tinned peas and beans, soup, rice, cooking oil, custard, tinned fruit, jelly, tea, coffee, sugar, salt, pepper, tinned biscuits, cakes, cereal packets, juices, dried pasta/spaghetti, diluted squashes

Kitchen Items
toilet rolls, paper towels, refuse sacks, tin foil, clingfilm, tea towels, hand wash, washing-up liquid, bleach, pot scourers, disinfectant sprays

Warm Clothing
hats, gloves, scarves
