Ethos Statement

Cork Penny Dinners is a long established charitable organisation whose core service is to offer a nourishing hot meal in a safe environment to all those in need. 

Cork Penny Dinners will operate for as long as there is a need. To feed one person who is hungry is a worthwhile, simple, fundamental way to help that person.

The aim is to provide a warm, dry place to sit and eat, with a welcoming atmosphere, no questions asked, no judgements made all, are welcomed with courtesy. Service Users are expected to treat volunteers and facilities with the same respect and dignity that they are offered. This ethos is upheld in a non-confrontational way at all times.

This ethos is founded on mutual respect and regard for the dignity of all: service users,  volunteers, committee members, suppliers and benefactors.
