A pizza good news for hospital workers, with local help

THE pizzas just keep coming to feed workers in St James’s Hospital and the Mater Hospital in Dublin.

The Feed the Frontline initiative by two Dublin-8 businesses – the Circular pub in Rialto and Coke Lane Pizza, Meath Street – is one of a number of its kind aimed at aiding the key workers who are at the frontline in dealing with the pandemic.

”It’s heartwarming, and more importantly it’s necessary to keep us going during work,” says Aisling McGrath, a local midwife.

”Obviously, it’s not the easiest environment to work in at the moment but things like these are a morale booster and are crucial to keeping us motivated and energised really.”

The Hopfully Brewing Company, an independent Irish microbrewery, has pledged to donate a percentage of the profits earned from their new beer towards the initiative.

Allglass Autoglass contributed to the largest pizza drop yet – 50 pizzas were delivered to the cleaning staff in St James’s Hospital.

Coke Lane Pizza is keeping supporters of the campaign posted on its Instagram and Facebook accounts, where regular updates and photos of the workers receiving their deliveries are uploaded.

There is more information at as well as the opportunity to donate some money to the cause, and choose which key workers your donation is used to support (e.g. St James’s Hospital, Dublin Fire Brigade). There is also a pizza request form available on the site for key workers to request a pizza delivery to their own workplace.
