Lucy Leeson used the Too Good To Go app, which lets people buy food cheaply every day to stop fresh produce from going to waste at cafes, restaurants and shops, to secure an inexpensive dinner. She ordered two carvery magic bags from Stonehouse Carvery – which contain the food but are “gambles” – to provide a meal for herself, her husband their two children for just £6.58.
Lucy was able to plate four meals, but still had tasty grub left over.
Writing for Hull Live, the journalist said: “I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I said we could have fed two more adults and two more children. And, most importantly – the taste? It was delicious and it tasted very fresh and no different to as if you were eating homecooked food.
“We had opened the bag in front of us, I was blown away by the sheer amount of food. We could easily have fed another family of four.
“We had Yorkshire puddings, mounds of mashed potato and roasties, dozens of slices of tender roast beef, lashings of gravy, four humungous sausages, stuffing balls and lots of fresh vegetables including carrots, peas, broccoli, sweetcorn and cabbage.
“My personal favourite was the roast beef and vegetables (both cooked to perfection), whereas my husband and boys loved the sausages and Yorkshire puddings. I knew it was good as the boys in the family were so stuffed, they couldn’t even manage a dessert. In fact my husband couldn’t eat anything until late afternoon the following day.”
Stonehouse Pizza and Carvery is a chain owned by Mitchells and Butlers with restaurants across the country.
But other large brands use the Too Good To Go app, which sells their food for great prices as it would otherwise go to waste.
And mum-of-two Lucy would thoroughly reccommend the service.
She added: “I will definitely use the app again if we fancy a treat and a bargain price.
“I also felt good that we had stopped food going to waste. I am even thinking of going for a magic bag from Starbucks or Costa for an afternoon work pick-me up.”
