Two Dublin pubs remove €9 meal due to food waste

Two pubs located in Dublin will no longer require customers to buy a meal along with their drink due to the amount of food waste that was being created.

The two pubs, Oscars Café Bar in Smithfield and The Camden in Camden Street, will instead donate most of the €9 cost of a substantial meal to charity.

As customers were required to purchase a €9 meal along with their drink, a lot of food was being wasted as patrons were not eating them.

Oscars Café Bar owner Ronan Flood stated, “It’s mainly a problem where people have come on to us and they had eaten in another restaurant and they were coming to us just for drinks.”
