Morrisons is giving away free Christmas vegetables to shoppers – how to get yours | The Sun

MORRISONS is giving away free vegetables for shoppers getting in the festive spirit – here's how to get yours.

All of its 489 stores across the UK will be handing out "wonky" carrots for free so that kids can leave them out for Rudolph and other reindeer.

Shoppers will be able to collect their free carrot on December 22 or 23 at Morrisons stores.

But it might be worth going early on December 22 to ensure you get a carrot for Santa's reindeer.

To collect the carrots, just ask one of Morrisons' 'community champions' in the store during your shop – or ask someone at the till.

Morrisons has been doing this for a couple of years now.

Other supermarkets like Tesco also handed out free carrots in the last couple of years, although it doesn't appear to be doing the same this year.

On December 19, Morrisons will also be handing out a free mince pie and Christmas cake to all customers who visit its in-store cafe.

Customers will just need to purchase a hot or cold drink to get a slice.

The move to give away free carrots comes as more supermarkets are encouraging shoppers to consider 'wonky' veg to reduce waste.

Most of the time, misshapen vegetables are thrown away if not bought.

However recently, supermarkets have offered customers the chance to buy wonky veg for less in a bid to reduce waste.

Aldi, Sainsbury's and Lidl slashed the prices of their veggies as the supermarkets fight it out ahead of Christmas.

German retailer Aldi will drop the price of its "Super Six" vegetables from December 18 and customers will be able to get items from 19p.

Sainsbury's, meanwhile, is slashing the price of a number of veggies with prices starting from 19p in-store from December 18.

And already, Lidl is selling a number of vegetables for 19p in-store too.

Last week, Morrisons announced that it would be getting rid of date labels and removing display until labels in an effort to prevent food waste.

It comes after Morrisons came under fire after it decided to scrap "use-by" dates on milk – asking customers to use a sniff test to check if it had gone off.

The change also affects Christmas dinner favourites, such as carrots and Brussels sprouts.

Some items will have their dates removed completely, such as bananas, watermelon and pineapple.
