Supermarkets are doing everything they can to help shoppers during the pandemic. One way in which Morrisons has helped its customers is by offering a variety of food boxes that can be delivered straight to a shoppers front door. Tesco has now also joined Morrisons in selling food boxes, including a Christmas food box.

With Christmas in just over a month and England in its second lockdown, supermarket queues will no doubt be longer.

Therefore supermarket giants Morrisons and Tesco have both launched food boxes to help their customers still get hold of essential groceries.

Morrisons has a vast selection of food boxes available including the Meat Essentials Box, Gluten Free Food Box, Cupboard Essentials Box and 5 Meals to Feed a Family of 4 Box.

All food boxes are available to purchase on the Morrisons website and the price indicated also includes guaranteed next day delivery.

The Cupboard Essentials Box costs just £20 and is packed with soup, pasta, cereal, milk, tinned tomatoes and bread. 

Aidan Buckley, Food to Order Director at Morrisons said: “We want to take the stress out of Christmas food shopping and give customers the ultimate hassle-free Christmas dinner to enjoy. 

“In a difficult year, this is the simplest way to get your Christmas meal.”

Morrisons has also launched a new meal delivery service for schools to help feed primary school children who are having to self-isolate.

The supermarket is working with schools to provide children who would normally be eligible for free-school meals with breakfast, lunch and snacks, seven days a week. 

Morrisons Kids Meal Pack includes cereal, milk, bread, fruit, yoghurts, sandwich fillings, pasta and squash.

The food store has also launched its Christmas Dinner Box available to purchase online right now and includes 16 Christmas festive favourites.

It costs £50 and includes veg, potatoes, gravy and even a Yule log to help families enjoy the big day.

The website says: “Discover our complete Christmas dinner in a box with all you need to create a festive feast for four. It’s full to the brim with succulent British turkey, sensational sides, an indulgent Belgian chocolate yule log, deep filled mince pies and a selection of cheese, rye sourdough crackers and festive fruit chutney. 

“It’s a wonderful way to take the hassle out of your Christmas dinner planning.”

Tesco is also offering customers the chance to get all their Christmas food delivered straight to their front door with its new Christmas dinner box sets.

Priced at £35 and made for two to share, the supermarket has launched its first ever vegan Christmas dinner box including 15 premium vegan products.

Traditional sides including roast potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts with the centrepiece being a pea protein and mushroom wellington. 

For meat eaters, the Finest Christmas box for two includes turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, turkey gravy as well as an array of vegetables.

Yorkshire puddings and Christmas puddings will also be available in the box.

Customers can order through the supermarket’s Festive Food to Order service for either Click and Collect, or to have a box delivered straight to their door.

Orders can be made from November 13 and they will be in-store to pick up from December 20.

Dave Nicholls, Buying Manager for Tesco Festive Food To Order said: “This year, we’re making it even easier for all customers to enjoy Christmas with delicious, ready-prepared festive meals that are packed full of flavour and can be delivered to their door. 

“We’ve seen an increased demand for vegan options across the business and Christmas is no different, with the new Finest Vegan Christmas Dinner Box joining our other dinner box for two option, so that there’s something for everyone.”
