Children and Young People's Services Committees are pleased to support the Children's Rights Alliance's newly launched Food Provision Scheme.


The Children’s Rights Alliance, with €50,000 funding from the Bank of Ireland, has established a food provision programme to support the nutritional needs for children under the age of 6 years experiencing poverty and deprivation during the Covid-19 crisis.

The initiative will target young children that are not already benefiting from sufficient direct food provision through another organisation or programme, or where their current provider is struggling to address need, 7 days a week for 4 weeks.

Applications to the fund should be prepared by local organisations who then look for endorsement of their application from their local CYPSC and then submit completed applications directly to the Children's Rights Alliance.  

Applications will be reviewed and processed by the Children’s Rights Alliance Grant Group and successful applicants will be notified by Friday 8th May. 

Closing date for applications to the Children's Rights Alliance is Friday 1st May 2020.

Application forms and further information are available from your local CYPSC
