A Wetherspoons customer has a brilliant trick to use the Eat Out to Help Out scheme to feed the homeless.
Rob Adcock took to Twitter to share the genius hack, which has subsequently gone viral after leaving customers impressed.
The social media user’s pal Dom revealed he gets people to order to his table on the app and then puts the food in containers and distributes to the homeless.
“This is a class idea,” Rob said.
“My mate, Dom, has been using #EatOutToHelpOut and the Wetherspoons table game to help homeless people in Manchester!”
“Top notch idea, actually getting the gov to help the homeless for a change,” one Twitter user replied.
BBC Radio One personality Chris Stark agreed, replying: “Bigup @domjdietrich Great idea.”
“Big love for this,” another added.
More than 85,000 restaurants have signed up.
Restaurants take 50% off the bill and claim the money back from the Government.
Around 48,000 claims have been lodged so far, the Treasury said.
The tweet has been shared thousands of times.
“Awesome way to make an impact through #EatOutToHelpOut, Dom! #Wetherspoons” one wrote.
“You absolute legend. This has warmed my heart this morning,” a second chipped in with.
“Big love for this @domjdietrich Incredible to see the scheme being used to help some of the most vulnerable. Legend!” another wrote.
Chancellor Rishi Sunak, a former waiter in an Indian restaurant, announced on Tuesday 35 million meals have been served up in the first two weeks of the scheme.
