In the wake of the devastating floods in Ireland last week, many people have had to turn to food banks, as well as food banks across the country.
A spokesperson for the food bank in Dublin said that the Irish Government was “actively working on solutions” to address the food crisis.
“This is a challenging time for the Irish people as they grapple with the impact of this terrible tragedy,” the spokesperson said.
One food bank has already told the Irish Independent it is “absolutely gutted” to have to close its doors. “
While we are hopeful that all the resources will be available, we would urge anyone affected by this crisis to reach out to the food banks in their area for support and advice.”
One food bank has already told the Irish Independent it is “absolutely gutted” to have to close its doors.
“It is an absolute gutting for us,” said the director of the Dublin-based Foodbank Ireland.
The spokesperson added that the foodbank in the Dublin area had seen an increase in referrals, and “an increase in demand for food”. “
If they need food for their families and their own, we can do that but if we’re only able to provide a few bags a day, then that’s not going to be enough.”
The spokesperson added that the foodbank in the Dublin area had seen an increase in referrals, and “an increase in demand for food”.
“People are asking for help with rent, heating, clothes, cooking and anything else that they need,” she said.
The Irish Independent has contacted the Foodbank Dublin and Foodbank Donegal for comment.
In the UK, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is urging people to check the “safety of your food” before going to the shops.
The RCP has published a list of the 10 most dangerous places to eat in the UK and is urging anyone who has not eaten in a while to check.
The group said that “there are significant concerns about the health of foodstuffs and people”.
“Food safety is a major concern for many people and we urge anyone who does not feel well to get some help,” the RCP said.
If you feel unwell, seek medical advice. “
The most dangerous place to be eating is at home.
If the temperature drops, go outside to warm yourself up.” “
Take a walk or take a bus.
If the temperature drops, go outside to warm yourself up.”
The RCF also warns people that the number of food-related incidents has increased in recent months.
“Recent incidents include: • A woman in Liverpool who had a heart attack after eating a packet of biscuits, causing her to faint and die • A pregnant woman in Cornwall who lost all her baby weight after eating the wrong breakfast and had to be taken to hospital • A mother in Northampton, England, who had to wait four hours for an ambulance after a baby died after eating bread • A couple in Leeds, who became ill after eating too much fish in a restaurant and then eating fish in their own home.
However, in the past year, we have seen a rise in people being hospitalised for eating food, which is likely to increase the number,” the Royal said.
