A generous company is gifting Cork’s homeless a weekly Sunday roast
More of this, please.
A generous Irish company has pledged to help the Simon Community serve a weekly Sunday dinner to homeless people in Cork during the coming twelve months.
The Sunday roast is something most of us relish, yet take for granted every weekend.
Now, as part of its ‘Sunday Roast’ campaign, which was launched today by former ‘MasterChef’ judge Nick Munier, Kepak will be delivering a range of beef, lamb, pork and chicken products to Simon Community locations across Cork, Dublin and Limerick once a week for a year, meaning people who are homeless can look forward to a special meal on a regular basis.
Fresh meat costs the Simon Community thousands of euro annually, so Kepak’s meat contribution will save the charity thousands of euro, freeing up much-needed funds for the charity’s other initiatives.
‘Memories and meal times’
“The Sunday Roast is something many people have nostalgic memories of and this campaign will provide a nutritious meal in a traditional social setting to those for whom it may otherwise not be possible.” said Bláthnaid Ní Fhátharta, Corporate Communications Director for Kepak.
“Studies have demonstrated the immensely positive psychological impact of coming together at meal times. Through this partnership with the Simon Community, Kepak is hoping to revive this tradition for individuals and families who may have fallen on hard times.”
