Popular supermarket chain Sainsbury's has launched its first ever drive-through in London Colney.

The 'Flourish Fuelling Station' - at Sainsbury’s Petrol Station in Colney Fields Shopping Park - will serve free healthy meals aimed at shift workers, overnight.


This service will take place for three nights only, and began yesterday (Wednesday, January 25).

Food will be served from 5pm until 8am each night, with hot and cold meals, snacks and drinks available.

Sainsbury’s director of product and innovation, Claire Hughes, said: "It is a shame that night shift workers don't have the same access to healthy, balanced meals as those working a regular 9 to 5, particularly as these eating habits are causing them to feel tired, whilst not keeping them full.

“We hope that Sainsbury’s new Flourish range will help to address that, with the Fuelling Station offering the chance to try nutritious options for free.

"Flourish has been developed as a positive approach to health, created alongside chefs and nutritionists.

"The range is all about delicious food with healthy ingredients that support a balanced diet.

"We hope it makes it easier not just for shift workers, but for everyone to find solutions for convenient healthy eating.”
