St. Patrick's Parish


Diocese of Dublin


Welcome Table

The aim of this project is to enable asylum seekers in Direct Provision Centres to access cooking facilities to prepare food.


Participants will be given access to a kitchen where a meal can be cooked. Some of the food prepared is eaten together at the end of the day, at the 'Welcome Table' with the local hosts. The rest of the food can be taken back to the D.P.C. for use at another time.


All ingredients are supplied and there is no cost to those who wish to participate. Transport will also be provided from Hatch Hall to Dalkey and back again at the end of the day.
