A group of women from Meath Food Bank are walking to Trim from Dublin! This Walk is all to raise much needed funds to feed & clothe the homeless in the Meath and Dublin Area.
These Amazing women work tirelessly to provide food to rough sleepers, homeless people and children in emergency accommodation with no cooking facilities. They hand out lunches to the children who would otherwise go without. We are appealing to the people of Trim and surrounding areas to come along to The Old Rectory on Loman Street in Trim to support this fundraiser. Your kindness is greatly appreciated.

A little piece from Aisling Lowe who is organising the Walk this year
Here is a photo from our walk last November we did for the homeless. This photo was taken as we arrived in Phoenix park to greet the homeless and supporters of our event. Just last year we managed to raise €8,500 in cash which we transferred into Lidl vouchers. This year we are hoping to raise much much more to really give to those who need it.
The Soup-Runs that we support include:
- Seasoned with love
- Friends helping friends
- Hope In the darkness
- Homeless mobile run
- A lending hand
- The homeless Street Cafe
- Grubs up
And also we support the Meath Food Bank who support a lot of homeless families across Meath. They help people in emergency accommodation and families in financial distress. meath Food Bank also help those with medical issues, people out of work with no means of income and those who cannot afford to pay their mortgage and are a the risk of losing their home.
Our walk is on November 3rd Sunday @ 7.30 am we will walk to Dublin from Trim for the homeless this is a 55.6km walk.We would Greatly appreciate your support at this event at the Old Rectory Trim. We need all the support we can get to help the homeless.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Sandie McNally Lynch for all her support over past few years she has become a huge asset to Meath Food Bank and in helping those who are vulnerable and in need of assistance.
Thank you again Sandie for supporting our walk, and we hope to see many more people and supporters as we would like this walk grow bigger each year.
Supporting Charities across Meath
These events we are running will in turn become part of the history of the town of trim and also part of the history of the Old Rectory Tea rooms, we hope to build the foundation for many more fundraising events that will help those in need.
