COVID-19 Volunteer Safety
The Irish government has recommended that those over the age of 70 years old, medically vulnerable, pregnant women, and those with a weakened immune system, exercise judgement regarding the extent to which they engage with others and participate in activities outside the home. While FoodCloud welcomes your support, if you come from any of these groups, we strongly advise that you stay at home. You can continue to support us by following us on social media.
About AIB and FoodCloud
In 2018, AIB committed to investing €500,000 per annum in FoodCloud for three years, further supported by financial and non-financial supports to the value of €330,000 per annum for three years from Rethink Ireland's Growth Fund. This investment was established by the Department of Rural and Community Development from the Dormant Accounts Fund.
Since the AIB and FoodCloud partnership began in 2018, the additional capacity and financial security provided by the partnership enabled FoodCloud to focus and develop a robust three-year strategic plan to optimally position
the organisation for sustainable future growth. This partnership has been transformative for FoodCloud and in the first two years of our partnership, FoodCloud redistributed an additional 50 million meals with AIB’s support.
AIB Volunteering Programme with FoodCloud
In additional to the financial supports AIB also established an employee volunteering programme as part of AIB Together, the bank's community investment programme which was set up as a way to give back to local communities across the country by building on the positive contributions that AIB employees are making.
Since 2018, more than 1,000 AIB team members have donated over 7,000 volunteer hours in our three Hubs.
