Asda has launched a 31-product food box to support people during the coronavirus pandemic. But, how much will one of these set you back and what items are included?
These boxes will include a selection of item and cupboard essential favourites. The move is the supermarket’s latest bid to provide further support during the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The Asda food boxes contain 31 everyday items and are aimed at helping vulnerable people.
Featured items include high-demand products such as cereal, bread, pasta, tinned fruit and vegetables, sauces, Extra Special jam, teabags and long-life milk.
However, Asda also say the boxes feature “a selection of treats”.
Mike Snell, Managing Director of Asda’s sourcing and procurement arm, IPL, said: “For vulnerable people across the country, staying at home and not being able to make a trip to the supermarket is a difficult prospect.
“At Asda, we’re committed to helping ease the strain on our customers during this time and hope that by offering our food box at an affordable price, we can help to make lives that little bit easier, giving people peace of mind that their cupboards will be well stocked without the stress.”
