Morrisons stores - including in Whitefield - have brought back a scheme where shoppers can say a code phrase to receive a hot meal.

The scheme is run in partnership with Heinz Beanz and shoppers can go to their nearest Morrisons café and ‘ask for Henry’ to receive a free hot meal.

It will be returning from April 24 to May 7 and is hoped to help anyone struggling with the current cost of living crisis.

The scheme was inspired by Heinz founder Henry J Heinz who would make food with his mother using ingredients from their garden to share with the local community.

In Bury, the Morrisons on Stanley Road in Whitefield will be taking part in the scheme where café staff have been fully trained and know exactly what the phrase means.

Rochelle Gardner, community champion at Whitefield Morrisons, said: “This will be the second time we have done this because it was such a success last time.

“We decided to bring it back this week because it really is a great opportunity to get out the house for a free and nutritional lunch.”
