Eat out to help out - a great success

The Chancellor has thanked people for helping to protect thousands of jobs across the UK, as figures show more than 100 million meals were eaten under our Eat Out to Help Out scheme, giving the hospitality industry a vital boost after a challenging few months.

  • From the beginning of the pandemic, the government's mission has been to protect jobs – and there is no denying the difficult months many businesses, especially those in the hospitality industry, have experienced this year. 
  • That’s why the Chancellor launched the Eat Out to Help Out scheme throughout August, to encourage people safely back into restaurants, and support the jobs that rely on the hospitality industry. More than 100 million meals were eaten under the scheme, helping to protect the livelihoods of 1.8 million people and kickstart our economic recovery from coronavirus.
  • Watch this space for the figures for Copeland which are remarkably high.
  • The scheme was just one part of the Conservative Plan for Jobs, backed by £30 billion, and we will continue to protect, support and create jobs to ensure we come back stronger as a nation.
