Morrisons has launched a £30 food box to feed a family of four for just £1.50 per portion.

Each box contains a mixture of fresh and dry produce for £30, which works out to be five family meals for four, working out at £1.50 a portion.

With the ongoing coronavirus pandemic throwing Brits into yet another lockdown this January, being able to save some cash here and there can make a huge difference.

Morrisons is offering the box in a bid to help families struggling with having to keep their children at home due to current school closures.

The £30 box also includes delivery which is great for customers who can't psychically get to the supermarket.

Shoppers can also order the box on a subscription basis which makes it even cheaper, coming in at £28.50, meaning a further saving of £1.50, or 5%, every little helps.

Although the boxes are only available online, Morrisons have also included recipes, so you're able to make five new exciting meals with ease.

On the website, Morrisons promises to make 'planning meals hassle-free' as each portion is priced lower than competitors.

This family deal box comes after footballer and food poverty campaigner Marcus Rashford slammed the quality of the government food parcels being sent to vulnerable children who would usually qualify for free school meals.

Rashford branded the effort 'unacceptable' after images of some of them began circulating online, sparking public outcry for more to be done to help feed hungry children throughout the pandemic.
