Cork Penny Dinners aims to offer a hot midday meal to everyone who calls to its centre as well as providing sandwiches and fruit to take away as an evening meal. Currently the charity serves more than 1,000 meals a week, while also providing a warm and dry place to sit and eat said meals.
Cork Penny Dinners is primarily staffed by volunteers, with the organisation’s income stemming from individuals, companies, and local organisations, all of which also donate goods, products and expertise which allows for the continuance of the service.
