Flipping great: National Burger Day is calling on Kilkenny to support Simon Community
The day that burger lovers across Kilkenny have been waiting for is returning.
On June 25, National Burger Day, sponsored by Kepak, Flipdish and Blenders is going virtual to encourage burger enthusiasts to come together online, share a burger, celebrate everything burger and champion the food heroes feeding Ireland during lockdown.
And for every burger purchased from your local burger joint and photo shared online, National Burger Day will provide a meal to Simon Communities around the country.
Following an incredibly successful campaign last year, in which The Handsome Burger in Galway claimed victory, National Burger Day is back for a third consecutive year.
Instead of crowning an overall winner, this year National Burger Day is celebrating local takeaways, their staff, the local food producers, burger manufacturers, and delivery drivers who have kept the show on the road during the pandemic, pivoting their businesses where needed to ensure seamless service for loyal customers.
“We made the decision to move National Burger Day online this year, reflecting the current situation the foodservice industry finds itself in. We want to celebrate and support all those involved in keeping the nation fuelled as we begin the journey into recovery from the crisis” said John Savage Commercial Director Kepak Foodservice Solutions. “Now more than ever it is important that we buy local and support those who are vulnerable in our society.”
