Shoppers praise Asda for £1 food charge and hope Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury’s follow

Shoppers have been praising Asda after the supermarket made a popular announcement to its customers. The retail giant says that all kids will be able to get a meal for £1 across all Asda cafes.

All children under 16 across England and Wales will be able to get either a hot or cold meal from any Asda cafe for just £1. This deal will be available seven days a week and adults do not need to meet a minimum spend to access this offer, Manchester Evening News reports.

Last month the initiative was launched in Scotland and it has now been extended to England and Wales. The supermarket chain says it hopes to help families tackle holiday hunger by offering these £1 meals.

There are a total of 156 Asda cafes across England and Wales, and meals will be dependent on if the cafe is open. However, if the cafe is open, a cold or hot meal, or both, will be on offer.

Since the announcement, the response on social media has been astounding. Carole Kiely said: “Well done Asda! Many places do ‘kids eat free’, but with a minimum spend or amount of adults, which makes it more expensive than eating at home, but this is truly an amazing deal.”

Deborah Jayne Law wrote: “Such a disgraceful thing that we should as a nation have to rely on a supermarket to stand up and help fees our children because our government is dragging families into poverty. Without schemes such as this there will be many hungry children this summer. Thank you Asda and all other outlets and establishments for stepping up when our government won’t.”

Pam Clifford also shared her praises and said: “Well done Asda, cheaper than school meals for those that don’t qualify for free school meal. Shame the school cannot open their kitchens during school holidays.”

Bob White added: “Well done Asda and to all the other schemes that are doing something similar. But what a state of affairs it is, it’s 2022, not 1822 and we have such growing poverty in this country. This has not happened overnight or over one political party’s reign but been getting worse for decades and being brushed under the carpet.

“It’s always some other country, no government likes to admit it’s here. It’s about time we as a country get to grip with it. Charity begins at home.”

Lisa Bowden said: “Well done Asda. That’s amazing. Nothing matters more than children and ensuring they are fed and well. Others should follow your lead.”

However, not all shoppers felt this way. Natasha Williams said: “Lowering your recent price hikes back down would be more beneficial.”

Margaret Fairgrieve complained: “None of our ASDA stores have their own cafés. Just McDonald’s!” Josephine Gibson agreed: “This is great but more and more Asda stores don’t have a cafe anymore. Ours is now McDonald’s and I’ve heard some are either Greggs or Costa – I bet they don’t follow suit.”
