Covid-19 Good Food Ireland Feeds the Vulnerable & Front Line Workers
The Covid-19 pandemic has thrown countless challenges to us both on a personal and professional level. Our hotels, restaurants, cafes and all but essential shops have been closed in an effort to protect the public and slow the spread of this deadly virus. As advised by government and health officials, we all must play our part by staying home, only venturing out for essentials and keeping safe social distances from those in the public.
While this is a time of crisis, it highlights how we as a country are wonderful to support each other. Many of us are making sure to keep in contact with elderly and vulnerable family and relatives, ensuring they have their prescription medication and enough food supplies. On a larger scale, local communities, sports clubs and societies are rallying to offer support to their communities and keep those most vulnerable safe. Food companies and other businesses across the country are joining the effort by assisting where they can. These include our members who are providing food and supplies to the vulnerable and brave front line workers. We commend our members and each and every business and person who is helping during this crisis.
