A Marks and Spencer statement said: “We have also resumed our popular Food to Order service.
“As customers begin to start socialising more outdoors, they can now order some of their favourite food products for pickup in store – whether it’s a picnic, barbecue or laid-back summer dinner at home.”
As the coronavirus lockdown eases, Britons can spend more time outdoors and meet with some family and friends at a safe distance.
The new service will offer treats for those occasions as well as for any big nights in.
The statement added: “Working closely with our suppliers, we’ve introduced a selected range of our most popular items – including our Classic Sandwich Selection and Slow-Cooked Lamb Shanks with Honey-Roast Root Vegetables.”
In addition to sandwich selections, customers can pick up party foods including pizza, burgers and sausage rolls.
Shoppers can leave the cooking with freshly prepared meals including a Roast Turkey Breast Joint, Smoked Pork Shoulder and various pasta dishes.
Sides are also available starting at just £4.50.
While birthday celebrations are very different during the lockdown, decadent birthday cakes can also be requested.
Customers can order their food online and collect at their local M&S stores on a selected date.
Over the last few months, the retailer has introduced new items to its delivery service.
Like many supermarkets, M&S launched a range of food boxes to fit different dietary requirements.
These include the Essentials Food Box, the Vegetarian Essentials Food Box, the Made Without Wheat Food Box and the Traditional Meals Food Box.
Customers can also get their hands on essential items with the Seasonal Fruit Box and the Classic Vegetable Food Box.
A £35 M&S British Meat Summer Food Box has also recently been added with summer barbecues in mind.
The boxes can be ordered online with nominated next day delivery for £4.99.
