Through their connection with foodcloud they have collected and redistributed over 7000 kg of food (the equivalent of almost 17,000 meals) and has almost 23,000 kg of CO2 savings as of the end of February 2022. @Clonmany Community Pantry has created interest from community organisations around Ireland.
