  • Deliver a bag of groceries 
  • Bring you a fresh, healthy meal for 7 days a week
  • Match you with a volunteer for informal phone chats
  • Bring you cat food, dog food, toilet paper, or Ensure (while supplies last)
  • Offer you an online grocery shopping lesson with follow-up coaching as needed
  • Add you to a list of ongoing check-ins
  • Pick up most medication, inhalers, lancets, etc. when permission is given to a pharmacist
