As people stay at home, there will be plenty of people who will be fearful to leave or high-risk people who have been told to stay inside.
Supermarkets such as Morrisons have launched new boxes full of essential food for people who are struggling to get to their local stores.
And now bean champions Heinz has launched their own version called ‘Heinz at Home’ with a three-day delivery window.
The boxes contain eight tins of beans, four tins of spaghetti hoops and four tins of tomato soup for £10, plus a £3.50 delivery charge, reports Manchester Evening News.
There are also plans to expand the range to include other popular products such as tomato ketchup.
Heinz is also partnering with Blue Light Card, a discount service for NHS, emergency service, armed forces and social care workers, to give them free delivery and priority shipments.
Members just need to login to their account and search for the Heinz offer in order to access their code.
Jojo de Noronha, president of Kraft Heinz Northern Europe, said: “We are very proud to announce the launch of our new online shop – Heinz to Home – which will deliver Heinz varieties directly to the doorsteps of people across the UK from today.
“The shop is a first for us, and it comes in response to stories we’ve all heard in the last few weeks. Stories about people struggling to access food and basic necessities, where people are understandably upset about how they are going to eat and stay healthy during this pandemic, and about people who need food but can’t access it in any of the usual ways.
“While we continue to work day and night to get our most loved Heinz varieties on shelf, we hope this new initiative will help those who cannot otherwise access our products.
“As part of this initiative we also want to thank all key workers – these are the people who are ensuring we are still able to access essential items, receive the medical services we need and keep our streets safe.”
