For everyone not able to get a delivery slot, try these Morrison’s Food Boxes. We ordered one yesterday and it’s coming tomorrow.

    It was great, we chose the vegetarian one and got:

    carrots
    potatoes
    onions
    white bread
    loo roll
    kitchen roll
    milk
    quorn ham
    meatless burgers
    veggie mince
    veggie sausages
    Quorn cocktail sausages
    cottage cheese
    white cabbage
    cucumber
    cheese
    microwave rice
    2 x tin of soup
    dried spaghetti
    pasta sauce
    tin of butter beans
    tin of mixed beans
    salted butter block

    Plenty to keep us going and make some meals out of. It's quite a satisfying challenge to figure out what to make. It's a bit like being on Ready Steady Cook.

    We've had a few of these and I've been really impressed. We've got the meat eaters ones and this was typically what we received (this is from memory so I might have missed some)

    Kitchen roll
    Toilet paper
    Cabbage
    Baby potatoes
    Carrots
    1 litre Cravendale milk
    250g butter
    Cucumber
    Onions
    White loaf
    Rice
    2 tins of soup (different each time) 
    Cathedral city cheese
    10 rashers of bacon
    500g beef mince
    3 chicken breasts
    Tea bags
    3 small tins baked beans

    There may have been a couple of other things, I'm not sure, but either way, considering we normally rely on online shopping and can't get any deliveries at the moment, it does well to keep us ticking over.
