Self isolating? Here's a list of local food delivery services. - Gemma Griffiths Photography

Self isolating? Here’s a list of local food delivery services.

A week before the UK entered official lockdown, my family went into self isolation. Although I’d planned for it, I’d tried not to stockpile anything. I didn’t realise how entirely helpless I’d feel, not being able to leave the house. So, I’ve written a list of local food delivery services to help anyone else in the same situation.

I’m lucky to have great friends in the area who have offered to help. We had a delivery of fresh food which felt like Christmas (thanks Paul!). But, every time I go in the kitchen I think of something else that we need and we’re going through supplies quite quickly.

Support local businesses

It’s so important to support small local businesses at the moment and with stocks running low in supermarkets, I’ve been researching local food suppliers. 

There are now many local businesses offering take away and home delivery services. I thought it would be really useful to make a quick list for everyone locally that is stuck at home and/or social distancing.

 

 

These are the ones I’ve seen advertising on social media (happy to add to the list if you have more suggestions). I’m sure there are lots more too.

If you’re not local, then it’s worth looking around your area to see if you can get similar services to where you live.

Note: 

It’s not a massively comprehensive list. I’ve got both my kids at home at the moment and so I’m trying to write this whilst doing a million other things as well.
