Food Insecurity in Ireland: Impact on Children and their Parents
Coyne Research. (2023). Food Insecurity in Ireland: Impact on Children and their Parents. https://knowledge.barnardos.ie/handle/20.500.13085/963
A survey launched by national children’s charity Barnardos and leading grocery retailer ALDI Ireland, found that more than one in seven parents (16%) said that they had been regularly unable to afford a main meal for their family/children and one in five (19%) of parents stated that at some point in the last year they did not have enough food to feed their children. The survey, conducted by Coyne Research on behalf of Barnardos and partner ALDI Ireland, explores both the prevalence and impact of food poverty in Ireland. It is the second survey on the issue, with the results finding that, between January and November last year, food poverty had worsened for children and families across the country. In November 2022, Barnardos and ALDI Ireland announced an extension of their partnership for a further two years.
