A charity screening of Midleton dance troupe, RDC Irelands Got Talent Winners Special, took place in the Gate Cinema last Friday, in aid of the East Cork Food Appeal.
The community turned out in their numbers to make a difference to someone’s Christmas by donating a non-perishable food item.
The equivalent of dozens of meals were collected to support the food bank who expect an increase in demand for emergency supplies this Christmas.
The food collected will be redistributed around east Cork by the voluntary group to parents and children struggling to cope.
The group say they are finding families are having to choose between paying rent, meeting the mounting stack of bills or putting food on the table.
The East Cork Food Appeal help save some stress by providing food to relieve the pressure.
No questions are asked and strictest confidentiality is given.
If your family is struggling you can contact the East Cork Food Appeal on their Facebook page, through private message.
