Online food delivery platform Deliveroo is to launch its own 'Eat In to Help Out' scheme this September to help its small restaurant partners.
Deliveroo customers will be given a code for £5 off an order of £20 or more during the first three days of each week in September.
The offer will apply to the first 100,000 orders at small restaurants each week across the month. National chains will not be part of the deal, unless they pay the difference themselves.
Deliveroo boss Will Shu comments: “Deliveroo is passionate about supporting local restaurants, who are central to our business and to so many high streets across the UK.
"Our restaurant partners play a vital role in our economy, just as they do people's everyday lives, bringing people the food they love. We know they have been hit hard recently, and we hope Our Eat IN to Help Out scheme can play a part in helping their businesses through this difficult period.”
Around 16,000 local restaurants will be involved in the scheme.
