Grocery Shopping:Many of our neighborhood stores and restaurants are making shopping easier for seniors. With long delays in grocery delivery times and social distancing limits on shoppers, it can feel difficult to find a time to go or even find what you are searching for. Below is a helpful short list of places serving us in new and better ways.
Do you know of other shops or stores that have adapted to the times in a meaningful manner? Let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
