Can you add mypubshop on there (I only skimmed but didn't notice it), lots of pubs are selling groceries as well as collect/delivery meals.

M&S and Waitrose also do food boxes (the latter via John Lewis website).

Thanks - I'll add box info for M&S and Waitrose, but it looks like the mypubshop doesn't do deliveries so will leave that bit out.

Some pubs on MyPubShop do deliver, and it's a particularly important resource for people in rural areas who don't have Uber and Deliveroo, bike messengers and so on that urban-dwellers have.

OK thanks for clarification, will add smile

Morrisons do a meat/vegetarian delivery box. We have had no trouble getting a delivery slot with Morrisons. I think they took on more delivery drivers.

Thanks caringcarer - Morrisons Food Boxes were already in the list but I've now recreated the list of shops as a bullet pointed list to make it clearer.

Hi Jo,

Not sure if this is relevant but Heinz are doing their own bundles, one of which includes 8 tins of beans, 4 tins of tomato soup and 4 tins of spaghetti hoops for £10. Delivery for this bundle (Hermes) is an extra £3.50-£4.00 depending on where in the UK you live, or free for NHS employees according to the website. Hope this helps 😊 I got a bundle when I was unable to get any slots at one point and was generally happy with the service.

Roberts bakery direct:

Fairfield Farm

Darts Farm

Lots of independent food producers are selling online, and if you find your local ones they often deliver free.

Thank you both, I will add these smile
