Morrisons is donating 100,000 Easter Eggs to families across the UK this Easter
Supermarket giant Morrisons has announced it will be donating 100,000 chocolate eggs to those in need in the run up to the Easter weekend.
The supermarket's community champions at all stores nationwide will be working with local food banks, schools and community groups to distribute the Easter treats to individuals and families who would benefit most.
The community champions play an important role in connecting Morrisons stores with their surrounding communities and by leading on local and national charity fundraising, the Unsold Food programme, and volunteering.
Each of Morrisons 497 stores will receive a dedicated delivery of more than 200 Easter eggs, including household favourites Smarties and Creme Egg, which will be set aside, ready to donate.
Customers also have the opportunity to get involved as Morrisons is setting up ‘Easter Egg Donation Stations’ in every store where shoppers can drop off additional eggs they have purchased. You can check details for your local Morrisons store by using the online store locator tool.
The supermarket wants to raise the spirits of the nation and spread some hope and joy across local communities as lockdown restrictions are set to be eased by the government as early as next week.
Rebecca Singleton, Customer and Community Director at Morrisons said: “We know that celebratory occasions can come at an additional cost to families, but we want to make sure that no-one goes without Easter eggs this year. Across the UK we’ll be donating 100,000 eggs to local communities where they are needed most.”
The Easter egg giveaway is part of Morrisons £5 million drive to keep the nation’s food banks stocked by manufacturing additional products which are then donated directly to local communities. The £5 million donation, announced in January, adds to the £10 million worth of food that Morrisons donated in 2020.
There are lots of offers on Easter eggs in all supermarkets at the moment.
Shoppers wanting to pick up some bargains to stock up ahead of the Easter weekend can pick up large Easter eggs to £2 at Tesco as a Clubcard member. You can also snap up some great value chocolate selection boxes that are perfect as an Easter treat or gift at B&M too.
