The 5 Meals for 4 Box comes after the government was criticised for its "disgraceful" free school lunch packages.
The catering firm responsible, Chartwells, has since apologised following widespread backlash.
A row broke out on social media when one mother, who didn't want to be named, posted her food package, which is meant to last 10 days and cost £30.
The package contained a loaf of bread, one bag of pasta, a can of baked beans, two malt loaf snacks and three snack size tubes of fromage frais, as well as some cheese, three apples, two carrots, one tomato, two baked potatoes and two bananas.
Chartwells, which is owned by Compass group, has pledged to refund costs where food parcels have not met its standards, and to contact schools to understand where shortages have occurred, while also apologising to anyone affected.
Morrisons is also offering a range of other boxes to order to your door, including a Sports Nutrition Box for £21, a Cupboard Essentials Box at £20 and a Veganuary Box for £25.
