At the start of May, Shannon College launched a campaign for #HospitalityFeedTheHeroes. We decided to raise funds for an Irish COVID-19 related charity. In an effort to support Irish frontline heroes whilst also supporting the hospitality industry, we linked up with #FeedTheHeroes for our campaign.
#FeedTheHeroes worked with local Food suppliers to provide nourishing and essential meals to all frontline workers.
The challenge was to upload a video of yourself with a ‘how to’ F&B video and then nominate 3 of your classmates, friends or colleagues to take part in the challenge. It was a huge success and reached our alumni all over the world. It was lovely to see so many familiar faces, all doing their part to help as well as challenging classmates and friends. See a selection of participants below:

Our initial target was €1,000 and we beat this easily. The final amount raised was €2,310 we transferred €2,215.13 to #Feedtheheroes on your behalf – thank you all so much.
