Eat More Fish have launched a nationwide campaign to encourage people to eat local, seasonal sustainable and affordable fish and support the RNLI’s annual Fish Supper fundraiser at the same time.
The RNLI crews drop everything to help save lives at sea, including their dinner! So this October,People can host a Fish Supper and fundraise to help the charity during this busy and challenging year #RNLIFishSupper
Eat More Fish have teamed up with some of Ireland’s best Chefs in Jess Murphy, Neven Maguire, JP McMahon and Enda McEvoy and they are taking on a weekly challenge of cooking with sustainable fish sources caught locally. They will showcase how you can cook squid, hake, mussels and monkfish easily in your home.
The idea is to host a Fish Supper with friends and family either in person or virtually, and for attendees to make a donation to RNLI.
EatMoreFish.ie are helping facilitate this by providing the recipes and donating 25% of all sales from the featured product each week during the month of October. To entice people further to donate more, EatMorefish.ie will be giving a €100 voucher incentive for their biggest customer fundraiser. The Fish Supper is RNLI’s big annual fundraiser and this year it will run throughout October.
“This year, we are asking our customers to join us in supporting the RNLI by hosting a Fish Supper in a covid secure way and make a donation to the organisation. We’re proud to support the RNLI’s volunteer lifesavers. We want to show people that eating local, in season fish is the best way to enjoy what we have on our doorstep. We have the best chefs helping us to create beautiful fish dishes at home, we can deliver this fish to your door and we can support the RNLI in the process. The featured species are sourced from small-scale fishermen operating inshore boats along the West Coast. During the initial COVID lockdown it was these fishermen who we chose to support, and who supplied our customers with fresh Irish fish during uncertain times.” explained Stephane Griesbach of eatmorefish.ie.
