I've been trying Gusto but now daughter is moving out I just want a weeks delivery for one person and they seem to only do
for 2 or 4 people. Do you know if any of the meal delivery companies do that? Thank you.

Wiltshire Farm Foods - I haven’t used them but have seen their advertisements on TV. Give them a call and see whether they will supply just for one person. I’m presuming that will be quite expensive. Good luck !

Could you have the two person package, cook the meals and freeze half of each one for another week?

My daughter uses them and enjoys having the specific ingredients needed to cook a lovely meal being delivered. Maybe if you choose carefully you could cook for one and save the rest to use another day or cook for 2 freezing a portion for another time?

AFAIK you could order just a week’s worth from WFF. Why not check their website?

We have just discovered ‘Cook’ and they are delicious, not terribly cheap, but very good quality. They do portions for 1 as well, which I’ve had for when I don’t want to cook just for me. Plenty of choice as well.

Hello Fresh and Mindful Chef both do recipe boxes for one.

My dad had Wiltshire for the last five years of his life and said the meals were great, a big variety and he swore by them

Hello fresh and Gousto are a bit different to Wiltshire farm fresh and Cook, they’re ready meals whereas the others are recipe boxes that provide the specific ingredients for a meal that you then cook. We have Hello Fresh 3 meals a week and it’s wonderful, makes us have a much better variety of meals with no waste and gives me ideas for the remaining 4 days.

We used both Hello Fresh and Gusto during the lockdown last year and both were super. We now use the recipe cards to replicate all our favourite meals.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I may go back to HelloFresh who I've used before but got expensive once all the discount codes had disappeared. Cook also looked good and are at our local garden centre so I can try a few of those. Many thanks everyone x
