1. Order online.
Most stores now allow you to place your grocery order online or by phone. You can then schedule a time to pick the groceries up without getting out of your car.
2. Get your groceries delivered.
If transportation is an issue, or you are at high risk, try to have your groceries delivered to your house. Delivery services charge a delivery fee and expect a tip, but it’s worth it if you can afford it.
3. If you must go to the store, take precautions.
If you can’t avoid physically going to the store wear a mask and gloves, and practice social distancing. Clean the shopping cart handles before you begin. When you get home, clean your wheelchair - especially the hand rims or the joystick.
4. Get take-out.
If you’re not in the mood for cooking, order delivery from a restaurant. Uber Eats, Waitr, DoorDash or Grubhub can deliver your food if the restaurant doesn’t.
