The Children’s Rights Alliance are delighted to announce a new funding opportunity available to our members to address food poverty and holiday hunger over the Christmas holiday period.

The Children’s Rights Alliance has received funding from the Lakeside Fund to run a food poverty initiative which will support member organisations in communities across Ireland. Through this funding call, member organisations can apply for support to address direct food costs for the children, young people and their families that they work with in the run up to and over the Christmas holiday period.

Funding is available from between €6,000 and a maximum of €12,000 for each successful project. 

The funding must over direct food costs (e.g. food vouchers; the purchase of items for food hampers or other means of providing food directly to children, young people and their families). In order to apply for the funding, please complete the attached application form. 

Please note the closing date for applications is 1pm Friday 25 November 2022.

Applications should be returned to the following two email addresses: and
