ASK HENRY

Morrisons are offering a free hot meal of baked potato and heinz baked beans to anyone who goes to the restaurant there and "asks for Henry"

And here is the story behind the offer:

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. That’s why we’re launching ‘ask for Henry’ with our partner Morrisons on 26 October.

"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.”

So if you need a free, warming meal, simply ‘ask for Henry’ at your nearest Morrisons café , and you will be given a free Heinz Beanz and jacket potato with salad, until stocks last.
