6 seater food flying!

6 seater food flying!

We have a six seater model X. With the back row of seats down there is a gap between the two seats in the middle row. When we food shop we fill up the cargo area. The food goes flying between the two seats up into the middle row when we come to a stop, even at a modest rate of deceleration. Do others have this problem? Is there a cargo net or other solution that people have used for this? Any help is appreciated. I think a piece of plywood is going to look pretty silly in my high tech car!
Thanks, Food Fighter

For shopping, I slip a cardboard box behind the 2 middle seats. For traveling, we have a long fabric suitcase that we lay sideways to block the gap, then put the rest of the luggage behind it.
For just a few shopping bags, we open the lower trunk hatch and use that compartment plus the frunk.
I have a mesh net from another car but can't figure out a way to connect the upper clips without drilling holes in the side trim.

I usually buy enough food that it doesn't move around - However, I'm 4'11" & 600 pounds >;-}

I took an old cargo net from a previous car and just attached it to the rear seats folded down and two cargo hooks on either side. See photoshttps://imgur.com/a/MhCPwpU. I asked the Tesla Ranger about those side hooks and he said they are designed to be used for cargo tie down.
