2018: The third annual National Takeaway Tuesday will be taking place next Tuesday 16th January. Just Eat is donating 10% of the value of every order on the day directly to Peter McVerry Trust.The initiative was originally introduced to give people an excuse to order a takeaway treat during the early days of January. In addition to rewarding customers with a discount on the day, Just Eat in recent years has partnered with the Peter McVerry Trust to leverage the initiative to help raise much needed funds for homeless people in Ireland.    

The homeless crisis in Ireland remains an issue of concern and with almost 4,000 young people under the age of 24  currently experiencing homelessness, accounting for approx. 47% of the overall total, the work of Peter McVerry in the area is invaluable.

Just Eat has run a number of initiatives, including National Takeaway Tuesday, over the past number of years to benefit Peter McVerry Trust and specifically to help raise money for its Housing First initiative which is working to house as many people as possible.    

Just Eat customers have helped to raise €40,000 in the past two years. This money has funded 4 homes for people experiencing homelessness. The ambition for this year’s National Takeaway Tuesday is to raise as much money as possible so that someone else can be given the home they deserve as early in the new year as possible.

In addition to donating 10% of the value of all Just Eat orders to the Peter McVerry Trust, Just Eat is adding an additional incentive to encourage people to find their flavour and choose their favourite takeaway tomorrow by offering a 10% discount off all card orders on the Just Eat app and website until midnight on the 16th January..

Commenting on the support for the Peter McVerry Trust, Managing Director of Just Eat, Amanda Roche Kelly said: “Just Eat really values and respects the amazing work that is being done by the Peter McVerry Trust and other charities to help alleviate the current issue of homelessness in Ireland. We want to play a small part by raising further awareness of the crisis to our community of customers all across the country and to encourage them to help raise badly needed funds that will be used to house homeless young people.

‘To thank everyone who has supported National Takeaway Tuesday in the past and to those considering supporting the initiative this year, we will extend a 10% discount off all card orders placed on Tuesday 16th January. ‘’

JUST EAT will promote National Takeaway Tuesday throughout the day on social media and with a media drop going to all key national press and radio stations to drive as many orders to its restaurant partners as possible on traditionally a quieter day of the week and year.
