Oscar’s Café and Bar, Smithfield, Dublin 7
‘Regrettably we wish to advise that under the advice of An Garda Siochana we will no longer be offering the facility of our Suspended Meal for the Homeless and will require a substantial meal to be consumed (or not consumed as the case may be) with the purchase of an alcoholic drink.
We have nothing but the utmost respect for the Gardai who are just enforcing the current legislation. It was never our intention to circumvent the law. It was done with the best of intentions with what we thought was a common sense approach to dealing with unecessary food waste.
Any money raised to date will be passed onto Brother Kevin’s Capuchin Centre along with a €1000 contribution from Oscars.
We thank everyone for the fantastic support to date and wish you all a happy and safe Christmas.’
