Morrisons Food Boxes

There are loads of boxes from Morrisons now. 

Essentials boxes

There’s a meat-eaters box and a vegetarian box. The actual contents will vary on each order – it’s all down to what’s in store. However you will get a mix of food and household essentials such as loo roll, bread and milk. A box costs £35.

Morrisons says both boxes will typically have

  • 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
  • Essential household items

In addition, the meat box will have meat products, such as sausage, bacon and cooked meat, and fresh meat such as chicken or beef. While the vegetarian box will also have “Vegetarian proteins”.

Family Meat Box (£45)

There’s also now a Family meat box, which is pretty much all meat – so ideal for a BBQ or a roast dinner. It costs £45 and includes the following or similar.
