We are medical students from the University of Alberta who have recently launched an initiative to assist seniors and vulnerable populations in the Edmonton community with groceries.
Our services include grocery-runs, pick-ups for online orders and delivery. This is a volunteer initiative to bridge the gap of accessibility, while promoting health and safety of our community so we are not charging any service or delivery fee.
The drivers will be medical school volunteers who have had police and background checks done by the University of Alberta.
Community members may opt for two options through an online google form or phone:
- They place an online order at a grocery store, we retrieve the order and deliver to their home.
- They give us a list of groceries that we shop for, send them the total cost, and then deliver to their home.
This delivery model involves a no-contact method for community members i.e. we would either take e-transfers prior to delivering or cash in envelopes left outside the door, and deliver at the door without contact.
If you need this service, or know any members of the community who could benefit from it, here is the online order form: https://forms.gle/F5u4v1WNYh3vwoRv8
