A nationwide campaign has been launched by Eat More Fish to encourage people to eat local, seasonal and sustainable seafood, while at the same time supporting the RNLI’s annual Fish Supper fundraiser.
Throuought October, people are being encouraged to host a Fish Supper – either in person or virtually – and fundraise to help the RNLI during this busy and challenging year.
EatMoreFish.ie is helping the campaign by providing the recipes and donating 25% of all sales from the featured product each week throughout the month.
The online fishmongers joined forces with some of Ireland’s best chefs in Jess Murphy, Neven Maguire, JP McMahon and Enda McEvoy in the fundraising campaign, and the top chefs will take on a weekly challenge of cooking with sustainable, locally caught fish.
They will showcase recipes outlining how to cook squid, hake, mussels and monkfish easily at home.
To entice people further to donate more, the online fishmongers will be giving a €100 voucher incentive for their biggest customer fundraiser.
“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,” explained Stephane Griesbach of eatmorefish.ie.
“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.”
Stephane Griesbach said that they have the best chefs helping helping them 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.”
