Bargain Box by My Food Bag

Bargain Box by My Food Bag

Successful home delivery service launches new value-focused brand

Bargain Box is a new brand from successful food home delivery service My Food Bag promising everyday meals that cut out the frills for an even more affordable family option.

The concept is similar to My Food Bag, with ingredients and recipes for weeknight meals delivered to your door. However, Bargain Box focuses on affordability and has options that feed four or six adults making it perfect for families of different sizes – especially those looking for a bargain.

Cecilia Robinson – Founder and Co-CEO of My Food Bag – says The Bargain Box Kitchen has created the meals to include plenty of veggies, easy-to-follow instructions and tastes the whole family will love.

“The difference is that Bargain Box delivers everyday meals that cut out the frills while also appealing to family members who might be a little pickier,” she says. “That’s why we have included Kiwi favourites such as fish and chips, sweet and sour pork and beef burgers.

“These are also meals that can be stretched for big families or provide plenty of leftovers.”

The average Bargain Box meal starts at around $5.30 per plate, making it a great value option that’s quick and easy, Robinson says.

“Meal planning is a proven way to cut down on food bills so you make fewer trips to the supermarket and are less tempted to make impulse purchases. Every purchase adds up – the costs build over time - and we believe Bargain Box represents an excellent way to not only help meet family food budgets but to stick to them as well.”

My Food Bag Co-Founder Nadia Lim says Bargain Box remains focused on helping families cook and eat together.

“Dining together helps build stronger families and healthier communities and we want to make it easier for more New Zealanders to provide fresh and tasty dinners for their families. That’s exactly where Bargain Box comes in to the picture.”

Bargain Box is available to order from June 21 with the first deliveries on July 3. Two options, Regular Bargain Box (which feeds four) and Mega Bargain Box (which feeds six), are available to suit families of different sizes and appetites:

• Regular 3 $79.99 for 3 nights (plus $10 delivery)
• Regular 5 $119.99 for 5 nights (plus $10 delivery)
• Mega 3 $109.99 for 3 nights (plus $10 delivery)
• Mega 5 $159.99 for 5 nights (plus $10 delivery)

Bargain Box is launching with free delivery on first order (i.e. $10 off) for the first four weeks.
