Home delivered shopping and food
Grocery delivery options
Some households are unable to get groceries delivered in a timely manner due to demand.
If you are not in quarantine or isolation, and can go to a supermarket to shop, you can do so under the lockdown rules. Try to shop in our local region, and get in and out as quickly as possible.
If you are shopping for a family member or friend, please ensure you drop the groceries off without coming into contact with them.
If you need to order home delivery, there is a range of options to consider through other grocers and independent supermarkets as well as the major supermarkets.

If you are experiencing hardship and cannot afford to feed your family or yourself during the lockdown in the ACT you can request a food and essential item delivery to your front door for free.
A volunteer will deliver your order to your front door. These volunteers are not permitted to enter your home.
If you are unable to collect the delivery from your front door you will need to arrange for a carer or approved visitor to assist you.
A limited number of pantry items are available through this service. Fresh produce is not available at this time.
This is an urgent relief service for those most in need. The ACT Government will monitor the demand for this service over the lockdown period to see if further food relief is required.

If the phone is not answered, please leave a message and someone will return your call.
