Just Eat Ireland celebrates National Takeaway Tuesday
Samantha Mumba helps Just Eat Ireland celebrate National Takeaway Tuesday
Irish pop sensation and food lover Samantha Mumba jetted home from LA today, having recently announced news of new music, to help Just Eat celebrate National Takeaway Tuesday. Taking place tomorrow Tuesday 22nd January, this annual celebration, developed by Ireland’s leading online food-ordering and delivery service, gives fans the chance to enjoy 10% off their order, with a further 10% donated* to Just Eat charity partner, Peter McVerry Trust.
With precious little left in the coffers as the countdown to payday continues, users are encouraged to tap the app and claim this tasty 10% discount while also giving back to those less fortunate. Now in its fourth year, National Takeaway Tuesday is just one of the many initiatives the brand will be running in 2019 to help raise vital funds for homeless people in Ireland. To date, Just Eat customers have generated over €50,000 for the Peter McVerry Trust, which is enough to move five people out of homelessness and into better futures.
The latest figures released show a continued increase in the number of families in emergency accommodation, with 9,968 people officially registered as homeless in November 2018.
Pat Doyle, CEO of Peter McVerry Trust said:
“Homelessness is not where we want anyone to be and with temperatures dropping to below freezing this week it will remind many of just how vulnerable people are. The support of programmes like this from Just Eat greatly enhance our ability to respond to the growing needs of those most at risk in our society. We currently accommodate over 1,400 people across our homeless and housing services every night, the highest figure in our 36-year history. All proceeds raised by Just Eat customers on National Takeaway Tuesday help us to scale up in response to this national emergency.”
Customers have until midnight to avail of this exclusive Just Eat National Takeaway Tuesday discount and make their donation by simply ordering their favourite dish and entering code ‘NTT2019’ at checkout. Stay on track or have a treat, with over 40 different cuisine types now available nationwide on the Just Eat app.
