Supporting the lives of our people and the broader community in which we operate has always been important to us.
Over recent weeks we have all enjoyed being kinder to each other. We have clapped the HSE, and volunteering is at an all-time high.
The world is changing, and we are already blazing a trail in our people and community initiatives. We want to use our passion for food and service powered by the scale of our operation and underpinned by our safety culture to make a positive impact on the lives of people.
Previously we would be busy fuelling workers in over 130 workplace restaurants across the country. But with the COVID-19 outbreak gradually closing most of our client’s offices, we had spare capacity and a team of people wanting to support the community.
We set ourselves a mission to feed our local community and give a new lease of life to our kitchens.
Here’s just a few highlights of what we’ve gotten up to in the last few weeks!
Emergency Response Kitchen
Compass Group Ireland has joined forces with our client at the National Treasury Management Agency to deliver freshly cooked meals direct to the doorstep of those in the community who need them the most.
Together, we’ve reached out to a number of charities in the greater Dublin area that are supporting homelessness, persons with a disability or health issues and older persons including LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice, Ronald McDonald House Charities Ireland, Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA), Age Action Ireland, The Children’s Sunshine Home and the COVID-19 Dublin City Council Community Response Forum.
Up to three hundred nutritious meals will be prepared and delivered twice a week, with the number of meals increased in line with demand.
We would like to thank the team at NTMA …. this is what partnership is all about!
