Getting food

Thursday 05-11-2020 - 16:56

We know that food shopping in a lockdown can be stressful - mainly thanks to people stockpiling bags of pasta and toilet roll. Firstly, please please don’t be that person! 

Gathered Market

We’ve teamed up with Gather & Gather (the University catering team who run Food at Brookes) to bring you some quick and simple meal kits. They’re a bit like the various subscription meal kit boxes you can get - you'll get all the ingredients you need for the meal alongside a recipe card. If you're fed up of cooking the same three meals on rotation, these are a great way to try out some different recipes. You can buy just one meal kit or you could stock up for the week ahead. 

You'll be able to pick up the meal kits from the Deli from Mondays - Fridays. 

The menu for week commencing 16th Nov is:

  • Simply Fajita & Wedges
  • Simply Beef Ragu & Pasta
  • Simply Tofu Noodles - VE
  • Simply Bangers n Mash
  • Simply Peperoni Pizza
  • Simply Veggie Pizza

All Simply meals are £4 each. 

  • Mac n Cheese
  • Sausage Gnocchi
  • Lentil Curry & Rice - VE
  • Fish Tagine
  • Jerk Chicken

£3.50 each
