Martin Lewis, regularly shares his money saving tips online as well as on his show. In tonight’s episode of his show which is currently airing every Thursday, the expert shared how struggling families can claim a free pizza kit during the February half-term.
He explained: “Morrisons are giving half-term pizza for struggling families. There are 60,000, given out in Scotland this week, England and Wales next week, but not in Northern Ireland I’m afraid.
“It’s enough pizza for two, and by the way, if you want to add to that, if you’re in-store in Morrisons, you can pay a little bit to donate a pizza kit to a struggling family.”
Colleagues working on Morrisons pizza counters will each prepare 30 kits per day which will then be distributed to local schools and community groups to help support families in need via Morrisons Community Champions.
Each kit includes ready to roll pizza dough, tomato sauce, grated cheese and either peppers and sweetcorn or pepperoni and ham, depending on whether families choose the meat or vegetarian option.
The kit also comes with a recipe card and cooking instructions as well as details of a competition that families can enter to be in with a chance of winning £100 worth of Morrisons vouchers.
To enter, families have to post a picture of their pizza on Instagram tagging Morrisons as well as the hashtag #PizzaKitWin.
Sian Ayling, head of Food To Go at Morrisons, said: “We want to ensure that as many children as possible have access to the food they need over the half term break, which is why we’re offering these pizza kits to those who need them in our local communities and would encourage as many people as possible to get involved with our competition.”
The move follows Morrisons announcement in January that it had set aside a further £5million worth of food supplies to help keep the nation’s food banks stocked up this year, adding to that £10million it delivered last year.

Morrisons also offers customers the option of buying their own ‘Pick Up Packs’, which are also distributed to local food banks, schools and community groups.
They cost between £1 and £5 and contain a nutritionally balanced mix of food items and other essentials.
The pre-packed parcels are available at the front of all Morrisons stores and can be paid for with the rest of your food shopping at the checkout.
In other Morrisons news, they recently launched a new food box designed to feed a family of four.
The supermarket was one of the first back in the first national lockdown to release food boxes.
The box includes five meals to feed a family of four from scratch with delicious and healthy meals.
Meals that can be made from the ingredients including spaghetti and meatballs, chilli con carne and veggie curry.
Morrisons said: “We’ve also thrown in hearty meals like Cheesy Leek and Mushroom Pie and Warming Sausage and Butterbean Bake which will keep you warm in the colder months and allow you to try something different this year.”
Other food boxes available include the cupboard essentials box, the meat essentials box as well as the fruit favourites box, containing a variety of fruit bowl fillers.
The retailer also has expanded its Click and Collect service for those who can’t make it to the shop.
The service is also available without an additional delivery charge and is contact-free.
Customers can also pick a time slot that best suits them.
