Eat out to help out

The Eat Out to Help Out scheme, which concluded yesterday, has delivered over the last month a vital boost for Britain's hospitality sector after it was hit hard by coronavirus. 

  • The lockdown measures introduced in March were vital in saving lives and stopping the spread of coronavirus, but the government recognises the enormous impact this has had on our economy, and especially on the hospitality sector. 
  • That is why at the start of August chancellor Rishi Sunak launched the "Eat Out to Help Out" scheme, which had already been used over 64 million times by the third week in August to give people discounted meals, getting customers back into local businesses to drive our economic recovery and helping to protect the jobs of the 1.8 million people who work in the hospitality sector.
  • This scheme has kept more money in the pockets of hardworking families whilst giving the UK’s hospitality sector the vital boost it needs as it continues its recovery from coronavirus – and we urge diners to maintain this momentum to help continue our economic recovery in the months ahead.
