Minister Ryan Announces Grant Recipients of New €5 Million Fund Under Strand 2 of The Community Climate Action Programme

We were thrilled with the announcement from Eamon Ryan, Minister for Transport, Climate, Environment & Communications, that FoodCloud, in partnership with ATU, EPA StopFoodWaste and The Rediscovery Centre, is one of the recipients of the first Community Climate Action Programme (CCAP).

The Community Climate Action Programme supports projects and initiatives that facilitate community climate action through education, capacity building and learning by doing. The programme is being run by Pobal, on behalf of the department.

FoodCloud’s CCAP project is a capacity-building educational programme designed to bring our community, volunteer and food industry network on a journey to become local changemakers in their own communities.  

Our hope is that this project will have a transformative impact in supporting Ireland in achieving its targets to reduce food waste by 50% by 2030. We aim to achieve this by inspiring, empowering and enabling a vibrant national network of food businesses, community organisations, and volunteers to further reduce food waste and increase food security and social inclusion in their communities through the redistribution of more surplus food and in the creation of more sustainable food communities.
