John Lewis and Waitrose will give staff free food over winter to help with the rising cost of living

John Lewis and Waitrose will help their staff during winter by providing them with free food in case they are struggling with the rising cost of living.

Meals will be offered during work hours to all permanent staff as well as temporary and agency workers.

Workers in warehouses, in head office, and stores will receive breakfast and lunch.

Delivery drivers will be able to order packed lunches, as per The Guardian.

Workers in stores, warehouses and its head office will be able to get breakfast and lunch in staff canteens, while those on the road, such as long-distance lorry drivers, will be able to order a packed lunch.

The scheme will kick off in October and run until January.

UK inflation has risen above 10 per cent for the first time in 40 years, a figure that has been driven by skyrocketing prices for food and drink, according to the BBC.
