Taste of Dublin is back and, as fans flock in pods to the long-awaited food festival, Just Eat has confirmed the return of the Just Eat waiter service. Supporting the restaurant industry and delivering a safe and convenient solution for festival goers celebrating the capital’s diverse culinary scene, Just Eat will also be donating 20c for every order made through the Just Eat waiter service from Wednesday 1st to Sunday 5th September to their long standing charity partner, Peter McVerry Trust.
Running across five flavourful days, a team of dedicated Just Eat waiters will be delivering delicious food and signature cocktails from some of Dublin’s hottest new and much-loved restaurants including the following:
- Naughty Neighbour
- Bites By Kwanghi Chan
- Three Twenty Ice Cream
- King Sitric
- The Salty Buoy by Niall Sabongi
- Los Chicanos Taqueria
- The Port House
- Topo Chico
Amanda Roche-Kelly, Managing Director at Just Eat Ireland said, “We’re thrilled to be back in Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens celebrating the return of Taste of Dublin after what has been an incredibly difficult 18 months for our colleagues in the restaurant and hospitality sector. The pandemic reshaped the landscape of the dining experience and we’ve seen real innovation right across the industry, with Taste of Dublin a fitting celebration of that resilience and the diversity of choice now available.
“Throughout the crisis we’ve been committed to supporting our restaurant partners, customers and the couriers we work with and hope to make the Taste of Dublin experience a safe and relaxing one for all attendees with the return of our Just Eat Waiter service.
“Much like our colleagues in the restaurant sector, the traditional fundraising streams of our charities have also been significantly impacted, so we’re pleased also to be able to make this donation to our long-standing charity partners, Peter McVerry Trust.”
As restrictions lift and industry looks ahead to a post-pandemic recovery, the impact of the crisis on those experiencing homelessness continues to be realised with recent figures revealing that 4,220 people accessed emergency accommodation in the capital in July.
CEO of Peter McVerry Trust Pat Doyle said, “Many of our service users were impacted by the responsive closures across the hospitality and restaurant sector, so it’s great to see the industry in recovery mode, stimulating employment opportunities for those skilled and available to work.
“Through the continued support of our partners at Just Eat, we’re working to provide solutions for people experiencing homelessness in Ireland and hope this great initiative at Taste of Dublin will create awareness of the difficulties facing those on the margins of our society.”
