The impact of the coronavirus pandemic has been massive and utterly life-changing. One of the areas that have been radically changed is food shopping and consumption. When the pandemic first broke out, and cities went into lockdown, many succumbed to the stress and worry that they will be forced to stay home longer than anticipated.
Don’t take the entire family. Go alone if you’re not buying many things. Otherwise, ask just one person to help you carry your shopping. This helps prevent overcrowding the supermarket and limits your family’s exposure to the virus. Also, avoid going at peak hours so you won’t come in to contact with large crowds.
For the most part food boxes have been seen by most as non-essential and aimed at vulnerable people within society. Foodbank donations, shopping trolleys filling up at the end of checkout queues and perhaps a local convenience store is providing delivery service of essential items.
