People in your community need help getting food on the table. LifePath's Grocery Shopper program was born out of the pandemic but continues to help people who can't or shouldn't go into public places. We pair a shopper (you!) with an isolated and/or immunocomprimised person who can't get to the store. You meet with them, go over their list, get a form of payment, and then go shop! When you've finished their list, you deliver their groceries and a receipt back to their home. Rinse and repeat weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly -- what ever works for your schedule and their need.
Easy, quick training and on-going support!
