Thankfully, there are grocery delivery and curbside pickup options to help us keep the fridge stocked without you having to go into the store. This is particularly helpful if you have little ones that you can’t leave at home in order to shop solo. Here are some we recommend that will make life just a little bit easier during this time.

Through Shipt’s app, you can shop from local retailers and pick out all of the groceries and essentials you need.

If you live in an area with Publix, the grocery store has an option for you to order online and choose a time to go pick up your items in store. They also offer curbside pickup and delivery options through Instacart.
Much like Walmart, Target also offers you the ability to create a grocery list online and have it picked up at the store.

Through Walmart’s grocery service, all you have to do is go online and start adding the grocery items you need into your cart.

If you’re doing a pickup, just park in the designated area and they will bring the groceries right out to your car, simple as that! You can click here to start creating your list.
