Aldi launches £24.99 essentials food box for delivery to vulnerable people


Although the shelves at most supermarkets have now mostly filled back up, there’s still a shortage of online shopping delivery slots, making getting essentialy difficult for those who are self isolating. After already switching up opening hours and giving priority to NHS staff, Aldi has introduced a new measure to help more vulnerable people during lockdown. Their new essentials food parcel costs £24.99, and has 22 items in it. There’s toilet paper and handwash, tinned items for the cupboard, and a few extra treats like chocolate and biscuits.


The boxes are delivered to people’s homes contact-free, and are only available online. They’re specifically designed for vulnerable people and those who are self isolating (rather than just social distancing), so please keep this in mind before you order.

Simply add to basket and choose delivery options before paying.


Much like the Morrison’s food box that was released a few weeks back, this is likely to sell out quite quickly. However, hopefully stocks will be replenished periodically so those who need the boxes can keep checking back and get their hands on one eventually.
