Morrisons has launched a family food box for under £30 - this is what you get

Morrisons has launched a family food box which it says will feed a family of four for five evening meals.

The box comes filled with a range of fresh and dry ingredients, and even simple recipe cards with suggestions for how to use the contents of the box.

“Unlike other recipe boxes, the Morrisons family box contains full retail-sized packs of ingredients. This means customers will also have ingredients left over at the end of the week - which they can use to cook more meals,” the supermarket said.

Tessa Callaghan, Head of Food Boxes at Morrisons, said: “Many of our customers enjoy eating meals as a family and we have seen customers do this more during the pandemic.

“It can be difficult to constantly cook up new dishes that please everyone.

“So, we wanted to create a great value box that contained high quality produce and recipe cards - to make it easier to try new things.”

The company explains that the box works out at just £1.50 per head.

“Other similar boxes on the market cost upwards of £50 for the same number of meals, and customers can save up to 78 per cent on the cost of meals per serving by choosing Morrisons,” the supermarket said.

Morrisons also offers a range of different boxes, including everyday boxes you might need, like the Cupboard Essential Box (£20), the Meat Essentials Box (£35), the Veganuary Box (£25) or the Vegetarian Essentials Box (£35).

There are also more event-focused boxes too, like The Big Night In Box (£23) and the Afternoon Tea Box (£18).

Alternatively, there are also drink boxes, such as the Whisky Cocktail Box (£25), the Ultimate Gin Box (£39) and a range of different wine boxes, too.

There are also a number of non-food and drink related boxes, like the Ultimate Cleaning Bundle (£35), the New Baby Box (£30) and a variety of flower boxes as well.
