WIDNES' Morrisons has launched a promotion that aims to help those struggling with high costs at the moment.

The supermarket chain has partnered with Heinz to offer a free meal for those who are in need of food.

Hoping to avoid any stigma that might prevent people from using the scheme, the promotion is available to anyone - young or old, with no questions asked.

Widnes' Morrisons, on Green Oaks Way, is taking part in the nationwide scheme that will see a free meal provided at any Morrisons cafe.

Being partnered with Heinz means that the meal on offer is a free jacket potato with Heinz beans, which is offered to anyone who comes to the cafe and 'asks for Henry.'

'Ask for Henry' means that guests can access the scheme in a discrete way, again avoiding any stigma that might prevent people from using the scheme.

From Wednesday, October 26, anyone can visit any Morrisons cafe and 'ask for Henry' and receive a free meal, and the scheme is set to run until Sunday, November 6.

Launching the scheme, Heinz said: "If you need a helping hand this half-term, from October 26, you can simply ‘ask for Henry’ at your nearest Morrisons cafe, and you will be given a free Heinz Beanz meal.

"One meal per person per day, old or young, no questions asked, until stocks last."

This is not the only scheme being run by the supermarket chain to help with food costs at the moment.

Morrisons is offering a 'kids eat free' deal, which means that if anyone spends £4.99 or more on an adult meal in the cafe then kids can eat entirely for free.

This comes as many supermarket and restaurant chains have launched promotions to assist people with the cost of living during a time when energy bills are rising, fuel costs are up, and the average cost of groceries is on the up, too.

The 'ask for Henry' scheme is being run from all Morrisons cafes in the country, and it is available while stocks last, until Sunday, November 6.
