Co-founder of Feed Our Homeless Tony Walsh, shared the picture as he blasted the Irish government over the housing crisis calling it shameful and unacceptable.
“No child or any individual should have to sit on the streets like this eating their dinner because they have no place to call home,” he said.
Mr Walsh concluded that Ireland should not be experiencing the devastating housing and homeless crisis that it is because it is one of the wealthiest countries in the world.
The volunteer who captured the picture earlier this week told that she had “no words” for the heartbreaking situation.
“Our Government should hang their heads in shame,” she said. “A four-year-old baby and one of the only places they have to have a home-cooked meal is our team?
“These children should have a kitchen table to sit at and have dinner, not on the ground on a crate at our soup kitchen.”
