Fr Joe Food Exchange

Fr. Joseph Boyle in response to the hardship the people of the Garngad were experiencing, decided a Food Bank would be one way the Parish could help them.

 

On Friday 7th March 2014 at 2pm it opened in St. Roch's Hall.

 

Thanks are due to the volunteers who turn up every Friday to distribute food.

Parishioners of St. Roch's, the local schools, St. Roch's Primary, Royston Primary,

St. Roch's Secondary, the Green Brigade & numerous persons who wish to remain anonymous.

 

In 2016 over 800 people were assisted by the Food Bank.

Information on benefits and housing problems have also been addressed by representatives from a number of different agencies have
