Athlone: An Interactive Art Piece on Food Poverty unveiled on UN Day

The Monsignor Mc Carthy Family Resource Centre ran a number of workshops over 6 weeks where men, from 18 to 50 years old, at risk of consistent poverty due to long-term unemployment and low educational attainment gained an opportunity to understand the routes in and out of poverty.

Workshops will culminate in the launch of an interactive art piece designed by the participants. Art piece introducing the issue of child poverty as well as food poverty will be unveiled by the town mayor at 11.30am on 17th Oct, UN Day for the eradication of poverty, on a play area in the Battery Heights community in Athlone.
