Free food for families at Morrisons this summer with ‘Ask for Ellen’

The school holidays can be a real struggle especially when money is tight.

To lend a helping hand Britain’s largest bakery brand, Warburtons, has teamed up with Morrisons to offer free crumpets this summer.

Anyone visiting a Morrisons’ café simply needs to ‘Ask for Ellen’ and they’ll be given two crumpets with butter and jam for free – no questions asked.

‘Ask for Ellen’ runs from 17 July to 13 August and is available to everyone, all day, every day.


But why Ellen?

The scheme is named after Ellen Warburton, the bakery’s founder. She started baking in 1876 and her first batch of four loaves of bread and six cakes sold out in under an hour. Since then, the family-owned bakery has gone strength to strength.

Warburtons has supported charities since Ellen baked that first batch and continues to do so today through the Warburtons Foundation.

In the last year alone the Warburtons Foundation has donated over one million products to schools and foodbanks and has set itself the target of donating 1.25 million products this year.
