Street Feast CLG (T/A Neighbourhood Network) is an Irish not-for-profit organisation which aims to promote social inclusion, tackle loneliness and build supportive and resilient neighbourhoods around Ireland. Our work creates communities of empowered people, with a strong sense of local identity, and builds empathy and understanding between neighbours.
We are a young organisation that is building from the work of early social entrepreneurial pioneers. We are committed to achieving a high standard of organisational governance.
In 2020 and 2021 the organisation focused on building strong foundations towards adopting the Charities Governance Code and we expect that 2022 will see significant progress in this area. The work was begun in building a values-based board and creating the systems, policies and structures essential for a vibrant organisation with high safety and compliance standards. Neighbourhood Network operates under the legal entity of Street Feast CLG (company register number 622674, Registered Charity: Pending).
Our year culminates with the national day of street lunches and community celebrations called ‘Street Feast’ that each year brings together over 110,000 people in 1,150 communities, through the simple act of sharing a meal with their neighbours. Since Street Feast began 10 years ago, we have seen a total of 5,563 Street Feasts take place across Ireland. President Michael D Higgins is our patron.
Since the pandemic struck we have expanded our vision and mission, developed a range of dynamic programmes, and adopted a new name for the organisation; Neighbourhood Network.
