Emergency Funds for Community Food Growing Projects
Make funds available to local community groups to purchase land, polytunnels, seeds and equipment to ensure future food security.
Why is this important?
Ireland imports almost 90% of it's food supplies. The CV-19 disruption to food import supply chains could have serious implications for food availability in the longer term. Even if supply chains are fully restored this crisis has called into question food security in Ireland. Local food security groups can help to address this.
