A NEW HOME FOR THE DUBLIN FOOD CO-OPERATIVE IN KILMAINHAM
The Dublin Food Co-operative has purchased a premises of our own in the heart of Kilmainham! We are just across from Kilmainham Jail and right beside The Lime Tree Cafe.
For several years the Dublin Food Coop has looked for a place to establish a more permanent home. After a huge amount of hard work by dedicated staff and volunteers, we have finally secured a home.
We will also be running a click and collect shop for bulk orders from early November. Members can order products in bulk on our website and collect at our new warehouse in Parkwest!
We are delighted to share this news and we hope that all of our friends and followers will be as happy as we are that we finally have a place to call our own for our community. We have a long way to go before are ready to move in and we still have to raise funds for our fit out!
FUNDRAISING FOR THE FIT-OUT AND THE MOVING COSTS
We had an ambitious target of €20,000 to cover these costs. We have raised 7,500 so far through donations and selling lifetime memberships - we've changed our goal to 12,500 so our friends can keep up to date on out progress.
Established in 1983, the Dublin Food Cooperative is a member owned consumer cooperative based in Dublin city. We are a community that has formed one of the longest lasting and most powerful sustainable food movements in Ireland. We are a community who wants to continue making an even greater impact on the food sovereignty and sustainable food movement. With the stability of a long term home we know that we can make this happen!
