As temperatures begin to drop, and we get ever closer to having to think about the heating cost of living is beginning to feel very real. And supermarket chain, Morrisons have come up with a subtle way to help anyone struggling to afford food.
The supermarket chain has introduced code words for those in need of a hot meal during the cost of living crisis. The asking for ‘Henry’ campaign with Heinz beans across 397 Morrisons cafes will ensure 160,000 meals available to the public.
Inspired by the ‘ask for Angela’ campaign in bars and clubs, those who feel vulnerable can get help in a simple and discreet manner.
Asking for Henry at a Morrisons cafe whilst stocks last will get you a hot, heart jacket potato topped with Heinz beans for free, no questions asked. It gives those that may be embarrassed to ask for help a subtle way to make sure needs are met discreetly.
Jojo De Noronha, president Northern Europe at Heinz said: “We believe everyone deserves the goodness, comfort and warmth a can of Heinz Beanz can bring. 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, said: “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 whilst stocks last.
