Through our two city centre community café’s in Holles Row (Dublin 2) and Portland Row (Dublin 1) and our community café in Dun Laoghaire, we ensure that people living in those communities have access to an affordable home-cooked meal in a friendly environment. As well as providing high quality food to our clients, our café’s also work with local schools, health centres and employment services, building people’s skills around, and access to, good quality food. In 2016, 127,720 meals were provided through our cafes, meals on wheels service and homeless residences.

Each café is open to the public and serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. 

The Community Cafés do not make a profit on food, therefore costs are kept low for our service users, making it possible for people to afford to eat well. We encourage a sense of community spirit through eating together and social gatherings.  We also aim to improve awareness on healthier lifestyles and diet. The Community Cafés  have established links with local community groups and services, to assist and compliment areas that may need relevant assistance i.e schools, health centres and local employment services. We provide on site training to local groups and schools. The Community Cafés are are HACCAP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Point) accredited.
