The UK govt has legislation out but since 09 it's been harder to find government documents exposing continuity plans.
You may be advised to ask a local farmer,
if you can follow his spring Harrow with more useful seeds than what he's putting in on a corner of his ground. When you're talking food the only place it comes from is farms or indoor units.

i think before they say a lockdown will start they will give you something like 12 hours to stock up on food to last you 2 or 3 weeks otherwise they will see people walking around looking for food spreading the virus .
It will soon be summertime and I think the virus will burn out in warm weather.

As of today have any cities or states announced how they plan to feed people who are locked down or quarantined in their own homes?
Will people be allowed out to go shopping once a week like in China, or will rations be brought to them, and if so will the state pay for them or will you need to pay the state back?
I know that many of us have enough food stockpiled to wait out an reasonable quarantine period short of a total social collapse, but what about people who shop daily or live off of takeout?
There's no face-to-face contact between the volunteers and those in quarantine. After requests are made via WeChat, the closest available volunteer buys the items and delivers them to the family's doorstep. The volunteer then sends a picture to alert the person who made the request that the items have been delivered.
If this virus starts spreading unabated the way it is in other countries right now, one of the likely interventions that civil authorities would consider is a regional or even national lockdown. In this scenario, citizens would be “invited” to stay at home long enough to wait out a few incubation periods of the disease—probably between two to six weeks. Governments would likely use curfews and transportation restrictions to starve the virus of new hosts through isolating people in smaller groups, with little contact between the groups.
What does this mean for you? It means that you should prepare to be at home for at least a few weeks. Unlike in most natural disasters, we can expect to have power and water, but non-essential activities and other gathering places will be shut down, including schools, coffee shops, non-emergency health-care facilities, churches, and gyms. That includes shuttering Walmarts, grocery stores, and Amazon deliveries. It’s time to think through how you and your family would get by during those weeks.
