Shopping During Covid-19
We know many of our members may be struggling with grocery shopping at the moment. Though there have been assurances that there is enough food in the supply chain for all, panic buying is making it difficult for many to shop.
From the 23rd of March Sainsburys will be prioritising online delivery slots for customers over 70 or with disabilities. Sainsbury’s has provided the below information on how to access this service
“We have been able to identify a number of customers as elderly and vulnerable based on the information they have given us previously. These details would include date of birth and if you have ever used our vulnerable customer helpline. For all of these customers, we will email you today (Sunday) with information on when slots will become available.
If you do not receive an email and you consider yourself to be vulnerable, please visit our Groceries Online website on Monday for information on how to contact us. We are also working as quickly as possible on an option for people to register themselves as disabled and vulnerable on their online shopping accounts.”

Where possible ask family members, friends or neighbors to drop supplies on the doorstep and collect them after they have left.
We will update with more information as it becomes available.
