Morrisons Has Launched Special Food Boxes For NHS Workers

While the world is plagued with bad news as of late, national and local businesses have been working incredibly hard to bring a little light into our lives. And Morrisons has done just that.

Launching a £35 food box just last week to help those struggling to get their essentials, the supermarket chain has gone one step further, introducing the box especially for NHS workers.

While the food box for the general public is available to order via courier delivery to increase the supermarkets online delivery options, the NHS food box is available via click and collect, where the boxes will then be delivered to NHS car parks to help ease some pressure off our carers.

The boxes cost just £30, and include a number of necessities such as toilet roll, pasta, rice, vegetables, fresh meat or vegetarian substitutions.

The service has launched in Leeds only for the time being, with collection points available at both St Jame’s Hospital and Leeds General Infirmary after a number of NHS workers took to social media to express how difficult they were finding it to get food from supermarkets after their shifts.

Speaking of the new boxes, David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, said: “At this important time, the National Health Service is supporting the whole country so we need to support them too. We will be taking this service to many more hospitals to help feed NHS staff as they face into the challenges of treating people affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic.”
