Your guide to food delivery in the Shire
Can you believe how quickly things have changed? Was it really only six weeks ago that if you had mentioned “Corona” it was assumed you meant beer?
None of us could have predicted the effect it would have on the businesses we use, own or work in.
So it’s to their credit that many businesses have been able to take the face-to-face services they’ve offered for years and quickly convert them to safe online offerings that we hope you’re able to support.
We already mentioned a few home delivery services in our recent blog about different ways you can safely support small businesses, but the requests for more names are still coming thick and fast from our community.
So to save you Googling endlessly, we’ve rounded up a more comprehensive list of businesses offering delivery of the finest, fresh produce, quality meats, the most more-ish snacks and delivered dinners to die for.
Some of these businesses have never offered delivery until now and have only recently made this service available since their local markets have closed. Buying from them allows you to support a small business while getting better quality essentials and gives them a fighting chance to stay afloat and return to local markets post-COVID craziness. Win, win.
