2004 saw the commencement of our meals project. Isolation had been one of the issues identified in the village. The Resource Centre Management Committee worked with the Active Age Committee to put a plan in place to start a weekly social lunch at the Resource Centre. The bus was used to bring people to and from the Centre. The meals were subsidized by HSE which helped make them affordable for all.
In 2007 the service was extended and a delivery service began, delivering meals to those in the community that wanted them but were unable to come into the Centre.
Today, the social dinners are still on once a week and the bus is used to transport those who need it to the Centre. The dinner is currently on every Tuesday and is as much an opportunity for people to meet up and chat, as it is to have a nourishing meal.
The meals delivery service can provide meals for up to 6 days.
