Deliveroo joins forces with Vogue Williams for Dublin Simon Community Partnership to launch ‘Full Life’

  • Deliveroo to donate 1,000 hot meals and launch in-app fundraiser to help Dublin Simon this festive season
  • Through  its Full Life initiative Deliveroo works customers, restaurants, grocers and riders to play an active role in local neighbourhoods and help get good food to communities in need.

30th November 2021, Ireland: Deliveroo has teamed up with Dublin Simon Community and Vogue Williams to launch its 'Full Life' campaign in Ireland this week. Through Full Life, Deliveroo is committing to work with its network of customers, restaurants, grocers and riders to play an active role in Irish neighbourhoods – and help provide good food to communities most in need.

With 70% of people who are homeless in Ireland located in Dublin* Deliveroo and its partner restaurants have pledged to donate over 1,000 hot meals to Dublin Simon Community throughout the month of December. In the run up to Christmas, different restaurants on the food delivery platform including Boojum, Zambrero, India Today, Reyna, Sano, Yeeros and 4friends Burger will prepare a selection of hot meals, free of charge, that Deliveroo will distribute to 19 of Dublin Simon Community's services located across the city.  The free meals will be delivered by Deliveroo for Work, the corporate arm of Deliveroo, which can deliver large numbers of meals at a time in its vans.

Deliveroo customers in Dublin will be able to get in on the giving action too, through an in-app fundraiser. Users can make a donation directly to Dublin Simon Community by searching for 'Full Life fundraising with Dublin Simon Community' on the Deliveroo app, to show support and appreciation for the incredible work the charity does to support the homeless community.

Vogue Williams,  Irish TV Presenter and Dublin native, has worked with both Dublin Simon Community and Deliveroo in the past and couldn't wait to lend her support to the campaign. Commenting on the partnership, Vogue Williams said:  "Growing up in Dublin, I have seen firsthand the incredible work Dublin Simon Community does all year round, but especially at Christmas time. I am proud to work alongside such a great charity to raise awareness of how donations can be made to homeless people, through the Deliveroo app. Knowing that this will help Dublin Simon Community to continue to provide services to almost 8,000 homeless people each year is really important to me."

James Phelan, Community and Fundraising Manager at Dublin Simon Community said: "Dublin Simon Community is proud to be the first Irish charity to benefit from Deliveroo's 'Full Life' campaign. We are grateful to Deliveroo's restaurant partners for providing free, comforting meals for our service users. We're also excited that Deliveroo customers get the opportunity to donate to our charity in a new and exciting way through the in-app fundraiser!"

 Paddy Quinlan, Growth Manager and spokesperson for Deliveroo Ireland said: "Not only do we know good food, but we know good causes. Full Life is about using Deliveroo's network and prominent position in Irish society to bolster charities and organisations already doing great work, such as Dublin Simon Community. We are in awe of the work they do and excited to support them this festive season."

Paul McCullagh, Marketing Manager at Boojum said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Deliveroo to provide meals to Dublin Simon Community. We have seen first hand the amazing work the organisation does in Dublin and jumped at the chance to help!"
