We provide a grocery delivery service for Richmond residents who are unable to collect food for themselves due to long-term disability, injury, or illness. Recipients receive a nutritionally balanced grocery parcel, bread, and fresh produce.
While anyone living in Richmond going through financial difficulty is eligible for grocery assistance, we require a doctor’s note or letter from a social worker or community agency to access our grocery delivery program.
If you need groceries delivered to you, please Contact Us. We will need to see the doctor’s note or letter from a community agency – this can be scanned or photographed and emailed to us.
