Food Appeal guidelines
Some guidelines and information to help you with your Food Appeal.
You can help people in need in your community this Christmas by supporting the SVP Christmas Food Appeal and donating non-perishable festive food items to help families and individuals enjoy an extra-special Christmas meal.
How it works
1 We provide you with a shopping list of non-perishable festive food items.
2 You buy the items on the list, ensuring that expiry dates are non-perishable and have an expiry date well into 2017.
3 When your collection is over, drop the food to your local Regional Office or drop-off point.
4 All food will be distributed out to the people who need it most in communities across Ireland, through our network of local conferences and volunteers.
