Just Eat Pauses for Pride this Saturday June 29th

This weekend, as the Dublin Pride Festival prepares to stage its historic 50th annual parade, Just Eat, Ireland’s leading on demand food delivery platform, has conducted new research into how the LGBTQ+ community feel about coming out to celebrate. While 14% of members of the community polled for the study (188 people) have attended Dublin Pride celebrations for over ten years now, 29% more plan to join in for the first time on Saturday.

Just Eat is proud to announce that it is also coming out to celebrate Dublin Pride for the very first time this weekend, sponsoring the festival and bringing two of its restaurant partners, one of Dublin’s most popular Korean Fried Chicken spots, Chimac and the delicious foodie hotspot, Urban Health, to the Dublin Pride Food Village, taking place from 12-6pm in Merrion Square.


On Saturday, to encourage everyone not to stay in, but to come out and celebrate Dublin Pride, Just Eat is announcing that for the first time ever, it will be pausing its Dublin delivery service for one hour, from 11am to when the parade begins at 12pm.


The Dublin Pride sponsorship is just one of a series of initiatives that Just Eat is introducing to further show support for the LGBTQ+ community. Understanding the importance of showing solidarity for the community at occasions like Dublin Pride and all year round, Just Eat is today also announcing a brand-new partnership with Irish charity, Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre. The charity is dedicated to supporting the people, spaces, and issues important to the LGBTQ+ community and improving their quality of life. It is on a mission to empower LGBTQIA+ individuals to express themselves and find fulfillment in all aspects of their lives.


On Saturday, 50c from all Just Eat orders made after the Dublin delivery service reopens at 12pm, until midnight on Sunday, June 30th, will be donated to Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre. While visitors get the chance to enjoy delicious food, sit, and relax, there will also be an opportunity for visitors to the Just Eat area at the Dublin Pride Village to tap and make a donation of €1, €3 or €5 to Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre in pride.


Just Eat has enlisted the support of social media star Cassie Stokes, who will be visiting the Just Eat area at the Dublin Pride Food Village on Saturday 29th June and documenting her experience on @cassiestokes on Instagram.


Celebrating every flavour

When members of the LGBTQ+ community are dining out, ordering in or going to bars/cafés, an overwhelming number (89%) experience positive allyship/support for their community. In fact, 41% think the hospitality industry is paving the way ahead of other industries when it comes to making the community feel comfortable being themselves.


Just Eat is proud to operate in an industry that works together to celebrate every person’s flavour, championing inclusivity, diversity, and equality and encouraging people to feel free to be who they are. This weekend, in support of Just Eat’s Dublin Pride campaign, several of its partners including GBK, Chimac, Urban Health, Saba To Go, and Bao Bun in Dublin, along with a select number of partners nationwide will also be offering a 20% discount.


Commenting on today’s announcements, Amanda Roche-Kelly, Managing Director of Just Eat Ireland said: ‘At Just Eat, we’re passionate about promoting a culture where every person feels they truly belong. That’s why we want to show up for the LGBTQ+ community meaningfully, by partnering with the festival and giving people the opportunity to pause for Pride and join the celebrations in a special way. We are also delighted to be working with Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre, a centre that does incredible work to support the community. In addition to the Dublin Pride initiatives, we will be working with Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre on several campaigns in the coming months and look forward to announcing more details of those very soon’.

Commenting on the partnership, Oisin O’Reilly, CEO of Outhouse LGBTQ+ Centre said: ‘We are so proud to welcome Just Eat into our community. Having such a recognised brand help drive conversation around the importance of making Ireland an inclusive society is critical to achieving it. Dublin Pride is an incredibly important occasion, and Just Eat’s efforts to enable as many people to celebrate as possible by pausing its Dublin delivery service, is a leading example to follow.’
