Can you help us?
The Killarney and Area Foodbank accepts food donations of nearly any type. Food must be within its use-by date and not spoiled. Please check dates BEFORE donating items.
We also accept toiletries such as soap and shampoo.
Donations can be dropped off at the foodbank itself, when open. Food collection bins are also located at Boundary Co-Op (Killarney), Killarney School, Lakeside Christian School and various churches in the town.
Alternatively contact us directly to arrange for a collection or drop-off of food donations.
