Morrisons supermarkets are now offering customers a free hot meal if they use a discreet phrase.

Morrisons stores across the UK will now be offering customers a free hot meal throughout the half term.

With thousands of people suffering through the cost of living crisis, Morrisons cafes will allow people to enjoy a hearty meal when they 'Ask for Henry.'

Teaming up with Heinz, the supermarket will be giving away a free jacket potato and a pot of Heinz beans from café tills with the discreet phrase.

A poster for the campaign has been shared on social media, with many people praising the high street giant for helping struggling families.

The deal starts from today (Wednesday, October 26) and will last until Sunday, November 6, with the poster reading: "We want to give a little helping hand this half term...

“Something our founder Henry Heinz was known for. Just 'Ask for Henry' at a Morrisons cafe and get a warming and hearty jacket potato with Beanz on us."

The small print adds: "From 26/10/22- 06/11/22 ask for 'Henry' at the till point at any UK Morrisons Café to receive a free Heinz Beanz and Jacket Potato meal, while stocks last and subject to availability.

“Unit of 1 meal per customer per day. Offer is not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash."

Jojo De Noronha, President Northern Europe at Heinz said: "October marks the birthday of a very special member of the Heinz family, our founder Henry J. Heinz. Henry brought comfort and goodness to others, not just through his food but his actions.

“We want to honour his good heart and kind spirit by doing what he did best, helping feed people in times of need - and that’s why we’re launching ‘ask for Henry’ with our partner Morrisons on 26th October.

"We believe everyone deserves the goodness, comfort and warmth a can of Heinz Beanz can bring, and whilst we know it doesn’t fix the problem, we hope our ‘ask for Henry’ initiative can be of some help at this difficult time for many, particularly over half term."

Sian Whittle, Category Director of Morrisons Cafés, added: "We know that our customers are under real financial pressure at the moment and are therefore pleased to be partnering with Heinz on its ‘ask for Henry’ initiative to offer customers a free jacket potato topped with Beanz."
