Tried for about a week to get online slots for delivery or click and collect at Tesco and Sainsbury's but was unsuccessful. I then started to look at things like hellofresh, local veg deliveries etc and most weren't taking new customers.

I've ended up signing up to Musclefoods "Do the Unthinkable" plan and got it delivering weekly. It's overpriced, but I've got fresh food everyday and healthy snacks, should hopefully lose a bit of timber in the process!
 
I've got an Ocado Reserved slot once a week, but now they are saying they might cancel them and it'll be a free for all on the website. I don't know what I'll do if that happens as all the other supermarkets seem to be overwhelmed as well.
Tesco boss asking for the delivery slots to be left for the vulnerable and elderly but govt advice is to use the delivery services and only go out if necessary.

It’s a right old mess atm but you have to hope it settles down in time.

It is a mess! None of the supermarkets are geared up for this and none of them has put anything in place for the extremely vulnerable group who cannot go to the shops.

No delivery slots so tried a click and collect at Sainsbury's Sunderland North and Silksworth.
No times available before their cut off date of 16th April.

Morrisons are absolutely stupid with this one.

I had a look at musclefoods earlier and the earliest slot was 20th April. I'm planning on a late night tonight to see if anything becomes available later on. I'm not hopeful.

they're ridiculous. Looking at the image at the top of the article there's about 4 things on there that would go to waste. If Morrisons have the capability of driving around dropping these boxes off then why haven't they got the capability of offering these slots for people to buy their own stuff?

I went in the Ocado queue most of yesterday, finally got in around midnight to find they were only releasing slots for the next 3 days and there were none available.

Went onto Asda which had been crashing all through the day around 1am and managed to do 2 shops, 1 for next week and 1 the following.

Then the fun begins as to what actually turns up and what substitutes they make.
I didn't fancy that. I'd rather buy what I need than get random stuff in a box.
With the substitutions it’s a lottery what you’ll get anyway.

They're going to be slapping these boxes into delivery vans, adding how many drop offs, there isn't a shortage of food, it's just that the masses are wiping supermarket stocks out.
Maybes they will think about it and realise and not do it, all people have to do is a normal shop, that is what they should be encouraging.
There isn't suddenly 1000's more delivery vans or drivers for the demand they'll create.

Going to need all the extra money to face the legal battle coming their way.
 
Bridgewater butchers in Washington do meat deliveries, they are busy mind!


Chester road fruit and veg shop do fruit and veg delivery boxes which includes a bottle of milk I think. They can be found on facebook. I dare say other independents are doing the same thing around the region and country.
I've been walking past there each day just after 6am and they are open then and have a shit load of eggs so probably not a bad place to visit for fresh gear. I'd assume getting there early would be best to ensure self distancing.

I think they're leading the way.

As would we all. But in times of shite, it's better to get something rather than nothing.
