UK State Shares A Bill of 35 Million Restaurant Meals
The UK has contributed to more than 35 million restaurant meals in the last two weeks.
It is part of a government program to help the UK hospitality industry, which has been badly hit by the corona crisis.
Eaters are lured to restaurants and pubs with a 50 percent discount provided by the state.
The program is called “Eat Out to Help Out” and is available in all restaurants, pubs and cafes in the UK. The discount on a meal is 50 percent up to a sum of 10 pounds.
The special allowance applies on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout the month of August.
