Struggling to shop or get home delivery? We’ve done a bit of digging and have discovered that several restaurant food suppliers are now offering basic groceries to the general public. So, if you would like to shop without breaking quarantine, the below options are ideal. Several have launched this week (such as Noones and Wellocks) – so if you move fast you’re in with a chance of a slot.

Noones at Home | £25 Basic Box | Delivered or Collected from Depot

Manchester’s famous fruit and veg supplier to the restaurant trade is now offering a basic groceries box home delivery in certain postcodes (or personal collection from their depot) service. The basic box (£25) includes fruit and veg, bread, milk, eggs and so on, with the option to add in other, higher value items such as rice, flour, oil, ham, salmon, beef and more.

Wellocks | £12.50 Packages | Click & Collect From Pollen Bakery

Choose from various ‘boxes’ such as a cupboard and pantry box (£40) with items like pasta, beans and sauces, a dairy box (£22.50), fresh fruit box (£15), salad box (£12,50) and even a breakfast box. They will deliver boxes direct to Pollen Bakery in Ancoats for collection by those who have ordered in Greater Manchester and to The Roebuck in Mobberley or Aiden Byrne’s Church Green pub in Lymm for those ordering from Cheshire.

Morrison’s | £35 basic grocery box | Delivered

Popular supermarket chain Morrison’s are offering two boxes to cater for both veggie and meat eaters. Both will set you back £35 and include the basics like bread, butter, fruit, beans and cheese. Households can order up to two boxes per week and choose their delivery slot – but hurry, these are bound to fill up fast.

The Creameries | Wine & Produce Deliveries | Coming Soon

Chorlton’s popular food spot The Creameries may have closed its doors but it’s converting all of its fresh produce and wines into delivery packages that will start being shipped out soon. With demand for home delivery services sure to rise even higher in the coming weeks, be sure to keep a close eye on the venue’s Twitter account to ensure you don’t miss your chance to bag some quality produce.

Wild and Game | £30 Self Isolation Survival Packs | Delivered

Wild and Game – a company that specialise in putting game on the menu – have revealed details of two self-isolation survival packs that can be delivered straight to your door. Not one for vegetarians, pack one contains items like a four pack of pheasant breasts, six partridge breasts, two mash chopped chilli pies and four 3oz pheasant and venison burgers among other meaty treats. Meanwhile, pack two features a selection of pastry goodness, including two traditional pasties, two pheasant cottage pies and two premium steak pheasant and ale pies. Both cost £30 plus £3.99 delivery, while stocks last.
