Diners at Cork Penny Dinners were delivered a fine Italian feast on Tuesday.
The charity was recently blown away by the generosity of the people running the Cork Flood Alerts Facebook page and a local pizzeria.
Patrick O'Leary, founder and lead administrator of Cork Flood Alerts, told the irishexaminer.com that Pizzeria San Marco in Midleton had donated a meal to the people running the page as a thank you for keeping them updated on flooding throughout Storm Frank.
But Cork Flood Alerts had a better idea for the kind donation.
"We decided that it would be much better to pass this [the meal] onto Cork Penny Dinners as we know just how wonderful the charity is, and they are much more deserving of the very kind gesture," said Mr O'Leary.
So Cork Flood Alerts and Pizzeria San Marco joined together to deliver and serve up a delicious meal of lasagne and focaccia, served in traditional Italian regalia.
A brilliant gesture from all involved displaying true generosity and community spirit.
Cork Penny Dinners is a soup kitchen which provides a warm meal to people in need in Cork, currently serving well over 1000 meals per week.
