Supermarket Morrisons has launched a food delivery box service direct to your door. You don’t get to pick what goes into your box – they’re filled with a selection of items including both food and household necessities – but you can choose between a vegetarian or meat eaters food box.

Each of the boxes costs £35, which covers £30 worth of food and the £5 delivery charge. Each box is designed to be enough to feed two adults for one week, and you can opt for up to two boxes per order.

Morrisons says the selection in the boxes will be based on current availability, but the vegetarian box might include canned baked beans, soup and pasta sauce, milk, dairy products such as butter and cheese, bread, rice and pasta, vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots and onions, vegetarian proteins, and essential household items.

The meat eaters box could have the same aside from the fact that the vegetarian proteins are replaced by meat products, such as sausage, bacon and cooked meat, and fresh meat such as chicken or beef.

You’ll need to create an account, or use an existing Morrisons online account. Select the box, then pick a day for delivery.

The food box is delivered by DPD to your door, and it will let you know on the day when your delivery time slot will be. The food box is chilled and insulated to keep the food in good condition.

The service is in addition to the standard home delivery service.

At the time of writing, all slots were sold out, with a notice to check back tomorrow.
