Food & Medication for High Risk Individuals
Most major grocery stores (Safeway, Kroger, Publix, etc.) offer grocery delivery. Other convenient options include:
Be aware that delivery times may be longer and placing an order for a day or two in advance could be advantageous. You can also request a “no contact drop off” for added security.
Similarly, United Way has a COVID Response and Recovery Fund. Your local United Way chapter can be found online: Find Your United Way
Major pharmacies (Walgreens, CVS) offer medication and prescription refills by mail. For those still able to get out and about, many locations have a drive-through option. These can be searched under pharmacy features by location on the respective websites.
