EXICITING NEWS ABOUT HEALTHY START!
Updated: Jan 28
Central England Co-op have this week announced that it will give all those who use Healthy Start vouchers an extra £1 to spend on vital food and essentials. The retailer has committed to providing all those who present the vouchers in its stores an extra £1. This will mean that those that use the vouchers will see their allowance rise from £3.10 to £4.10 in Central England Co-op stores. Co-op have also committed to continue the scheme after the value of vouchers increased in April to £4.25, meaning families will have £5.25 to spend. To claim the extra £1, all people have to do is present their vouchers at the till point and the colleague will automatically add on the extra £1 on top of the vouchers supplied
From this week, Tesco are giving any family who use the weekly Healthy Start vouchers a £1 coupon to spend on fresh and frozen fruit and vegetables. Every time a customer hands over their vouchers at the checkout, they will automatically receive the money-off coupon to redeem off their next shop. Tesco haven’t released details of if or when this scheme will end.
Iceland are also increasing the value of the Healthy Start scheme by giving a bag of frozen veg to all beneficiaries who use the vouchers in their store. This initiative is due to end in December.
