Good nutrition is a necessity for long life. What you eat determines how healthy you are and consequently your life expectancy. Poor nourishment has been a major cause for concern among children, and also correlates with many diseases among adults. As part of our efforts at ensuring well-being of vulnerable families in our community, our Nutrition projects remain an essentail part of CORE Ireland.
CORE Ireland’s Nutrition projects involve our Nourish Project. Volunteers collect non-perishable food items from the public through schools, clubs, businesses and other organisations and we re-distribute those to families in need in our area. We also collect perishable food items from Supermarkets through a national organisation called Food Cloud. These food items are re-packed into food parcels for distribution to families in need.
