As people continue to stockpile products and queues stretch for hours outside supermarkets, many have turned to online delivery.

Unfortunately, some companies are struggling to keep up with demand from the coronavirus pandemic and delivery slots are being filled up very quickly.

As an example, Ocado currently has a two-hour wait time for shoppers to enter their website shop and some brands are prioritising existing customers over new ones.

Well, it’s Morrisons to the rescue.

The supermarket chain has just launched a new initiative of special food boxes, aimed at getting foods to people who are struggling to place orders online.

According to the website, each box includes ‘a selection of everyday items’ dependent on current availability of food and household goods (fingers crossed for toilet paper).

There are two options: vegetarian or meat.

Elderly or vulnerable customers – such as those with underlying health issues who have been ordered to remain indoors – will be prioritised.



The boxes are fairly affordable at £30, with a £5 delivery fee on top (so £35 in total) and will feed two adults for one week.

As an example, the vegetarian box might contain canned baked beans, soup, dairy products, rice and pasta (yes, really), carrots and more.

Meanwhile, in the meat version, you also get chicken or beef.

But if you’re allergic, be careful as no guarantees can be made for specific requirements – so read the label before you dig in.

It’s an innovative idea to make sure people get the food they need.

And it’s also a fun game for those who fancy playing: what will my box contain this week?

Order your box online now.
