Pret and McDonald’s give away free hot drinks to NHS staff

Food chains are offering free drinks and discounts to NHS staff amid the Covid-19 pandemic. 

McDonald’s said all emergency services personnel and health and social workers in the UK would be able to collect free drinks at all restaurants while Government guidance allows them to stay open.

The chain’s restaurants are to become takeaways, drive-thrus and delivery operations as the company attempts to cope with the outbreak.

This morning, the official Pret Twitter account said hot drinks would be ‘on the house’ for all employees with a valid NHS staff card, and discounts are being offered on food.

While the Co-op is to provide free lunches for all students who normally receive government-funded free school meals at its 25 academies, if they are required to close because of the coronavirus outbreak.

Two Co-op Academy schools are closing on Thursday as students, families and staff self-isolate.

The Co-op called on the Government to lead a nationwide effort to help feed the 1.4 million students who receive free school meals across the UK.

Jo Whitfield, chief executive of Co-op Retail, said: ‘For many children who receive free school meals, lunch at school is the main meal of the day, so if school closes unexpectedly they could go hungry.

‘We don’t think that’s fair on our students or their families who often struggle to keep food on the table, and it has an impact on the health and well-being of vulnerable families.

‘So we’re making sure the students attending our 25 Co-op Academies won’t miss out, but we know this is a drop in the ocean when you consider there are 1.4 million kids on free school meals in this country.’

The Co-op will provide all students receiving free school meals at its 25 Co-op Academy schools, located in the north of England, with a £20 voucher to spend in Co-op food stores, saying it was enough to cover a one-week unplanned closure.

The move affects around 6,500 students.
