Morrisons has launched a food box that offers families the ingredients for five meals together with simple recipes describing how to cook them…. and all for just £30, including delivery.
The family recipe box – called Five Meals to Feed a Family of Four – is designed to provide quick, easy and affordable homemade meals that families can cook from scratch at home.
Each is designed to be served in the evenings and make mealtimes a social, family experience.
The launch comes after a study released earlier in July showed an increase in family dinners during lockdown, with shared family mealtimes being cited as positive for mental health and social wellbeing.
Priced at £30, including next-day or nominated day delivery, the Morrisons family recipe box works out at just £1.50 per meal 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 the meals per serving by choosing Morrisons.
Unlike other recipe boxes, the Morrisons family recipe 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 box is ideal for families that enjoy preparing meals from scratch and is also a great way to get children involved cooking at home.
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.”
Recipes that are included in the Morrisons Five Meals to Feed a Family of Four box are:
Classic Spaghetti Bolognese
Veggie Pasta Bake
Rosti Topped Cottage Pie
Sausage Tray Bake
Mixed Bean Chilli with Wedges
The box contains 22 different products and weighs 14kg.
The contents represent a saving on normal Morrisons instore prices, even with next day delivery included.
Morrisons has sold tens of thousands of food boxes.
Customers can now choose from 15 varieties including; a Vegetarian Food Box, Gluten Free Food Box, BBQ Food Box, Market Kitchen Takeaway Favourites Box and British Farmers Food Box.
