Accessing Food While Staying Safe

All of us should do our part to stay out of stores as much as possible. That doesn’t mean you can’t get the things you need, however! Below are some options.

Plan Ahead: Make menus and grocery lists and stock up when possible to avoid lots of little trips.

Phone Orders and Curbside Pick Up: At many grocery stores and restaurants, you can place your order in advance and then do a curbside pick up. Here is a comprehensive list of Take-Out Options. White Market offers outside pickup using White Market Express. 

Bulk Fresh Food: Supplement trips to the grocery store (or replace the grocery store all together) by ordering fresh food through local bulk distributors. For more information email covid@peacham.org.

Best Practices: When you do need to visit a grocery store, always wear a mask and maintain social distancing, following any arrows you see indicating which direction each aisle goes.
