If you’ve ever thought about ordering your groceries online now is the time to jump in. The coronavirus is leaving citizens scrambling to get groceries. Right now, many are standing in a line of a brick and mortar store that’s wrapped around the door. To help ease some of the stress and anxiety, I’ve put together a list of places that will get healthy groceries and ready to cook meals delivered to your door.
*Pay attention due to any potential delays as many companies are experiencing higher volumes than usual (coronavirus). In that case, the sooner you check in to place your order, the better.
This post does not guarantee that these services will be availble during extreme times of emergency. But keep them in mind because having them at your disposal will help.
Schools are being closed. Colleges are reverting to online learning. The NBA just cancelled the rest of the season. Cochella…nope. SXSW not happening. The first set of celebrities have publically announced that they tested postive. Everyone will be financially affected whether directly or indirectly.
What does this mean? A lot. Part of what it means is that you should be prepared to stay inside for awhile. It’s not just about quarantines though, even people that may appear healthy will have to restrict time away from home.
One of the things you can do whether you’re working from home, schooling from home, under quarantine or just playing it safe is to order your food and supplies online. Thankfully, many companies have online ordering and delivery as an option so you won’t be without options if you need to.
So if you want a list of services you can use to safely order your healthy grocery staples and supplies without going to the store, this post is a great place to start.
It can be overwhelming trying to figure out everything when information is flying at you from every corner. But hopefully, where to buy groceries, food and supplies won’t be one of the things you’ll have to worry about.
Order anything you would typically order from some of your favorite grocery stores by signing up for Instacart.

Even if you don’t get everything you want, first you should sign up. You can always fill in the gaps with some of the other resources on this list.
It goes without saying that Amazon is the mecca when it comes to easy shopping online. So much so as a matter of fact, that I’ve written about Amazon many times.

Your local grocery stores may also have on option for online delivery, so if you haven’t tried it before, now is a good time sign up and try the service.
