Food shopping

There are a number of options if you need food deliveries to your door.

Most supermarkets offer delivery and also click and collect services. It is sometimes hard to get a slot for these services but the supermarkets are now providing special arrangements if you are over 70, recognised by the NHS as extremely vulnerable (on the Shielding List) or otherwise elderly and vulnerable.   

We have provided details of what each supermarket is offering including the helpline numbers that will ensure you can get a delivery or collection slot.

If you are unable to accept a delivery, choose a click and collect slot and call our Emergency Helpline on 020 3045 5398 or apply online and we will arrange for your shopping to be collected and delivered to you with assistance.

Online deliveries

Supermarkets have changed the way groceries are delivered during the outbreak of Covid-19.

The major supermarkets have made some temporary changes in line with advice provided by the UK government and Public Health England. To keep contact to a minimum, drivers will no longer enter homes. When your delivery arrives, the driver will carefully place your shopping at your door before knocking and stepping back. All deliveries will be bagged to make it easier for you to move them inside.

Click and Collect 

If you don’t have anyone to get your shopping for you, or cannot get a delivery slot with your usual supermarket, why not try click and collect?

Most of the supermarkets offer this option as part of their online offer. You select click and collect, choose your shopping, pay online and give us the details and reference number for your order (you can email this to us) we can then arrange for it to be collected and delivered to your door.   

Please telephone the emergency helpline before placing your order and we can tell you when we can deliver!

See Asda, Sainsbury's, Tesco and Waitrose sections for details of how to access the major supermarkets’ online delivery and click and collect services.
