Bristol businesses Real Wrap Co and Foodiependent are collaborating to provide affordable and improved 7-day food essential boxes to support UK students or anyone in need during their gruelling quarantines, self-isolations and lockdowns.
With the number of daily Covid-19 cases still on the rise in Universities across the UK, including Bristol, and students struggling to get the support they need to feed themselves, we felt compelled to find a solution. The main issues students have been facing are:
- Whilst in isolation, students cannot go to shops in person
- Delivery slots at superstores across Bristol currently have a 1-3 week waiting list
- Universities are struggling to provide high quality, healthy food boxes and deliver them quickly
“I was shocked to hear what students have had to live through during their time in isolation. A vital part of being a student is learning how to budget, cook and enjoy healthy food and just because students are currently in isolation doesn’t mean they should miss out on that!”Cherine Ormerod – Founder of Foodiependent
With a bit of research, we came across Bristol-based ethical business, Real Wrap Co, who had been supplying the NHS & vulnerable families across the UK with ambient (shelf-stable) food supply boxes since April. We both agreed that Bristol students deserve better and the partnership was born. We began working to create the new & improved isolation food boxes – which are a selection of fresh and ambient choices enough for 7-days. The boxes are packed with well known brands like Heinz, Branston, Cadbury’s, McVities and Pipers and are designed to provide simple, delicious and healthy food with free next day delivery.
“We want to support UK students and make food shopping as stress-free and as accessible as possible. Students have enough to worry about at this time, food shouldn’t be one of them.”Jason Howell, Owner of Real Wrap Co.
Students, or anyone in need, in Bristol can now order this 7-day Isolation Food Box + Fresh Bread, Fruit & Veg Box for £44.00 (or separately for £34).
