As the State Government is encouraging everyone to stay indoors during the COVID-19 quarantine, buying essential foods and items has become a bit more difficult. With items going out of stock and businesses closing, here are some recent announcements of how you can buy food/ essential items from your house and have it delivered without the potential risk of contact.
Woolworths Basic Box
With the growing numbers of people in self-isolation, especially for those who do not want to go shopping, Woolworths has made a “Basic Box”, offering the essential food and grocery needs. While the Basic Box is currently only available across ACT, NSW and Victoria, our mates over at Glam Adelaide said that this will be available in other states, including South Australia, within the next few weeks.
For $80, the Woolies Basic Box will contain non-changeable grocery items for meals, snacks, as well as essential items. And yes, that includes toilet paper. The box is available on the Woolworths website and will be sent out via the Australian Post within an estimated time of two to five business days of the order with a contactless delivery. Woolworths plans to transform another 100 Supermarkets into “Priority Delivery Hubs” to get more home deliveries to ‘Priority Assistance’ customers.
Chicco Palms DIY Pizza Kit
Italian restaurant Chicco Palms is taking home delivery to the next level by offering a DIY pizza kit. If you enjoy the pizzas, but not wanting to leave the house, the DIY kit will arrive at your doorstep in a box with four balls of dough and toppings, you’ll be able to make pizzas with your family in the comfort of your own home.
Chicco Palms is also offering another essential home delivery of cocktail kits, which includes Espresso Martinis and Pina Coladas, for all you who are missing being out and having drinks. Chicco Palms can be found on 437 Henley Beach Rd and they’re open every day, except Mondays, from 11:30 am to 9 pm.
Easter weekend isn’t too far away and even though seeing family has become a bit difficult, it doesn’t mean that you can’t have a bit of a treat. Kytons Bakery is now offering deliveries to homes, including hot cross buns. For Easter, Kytons is offering a Hott Cross Bun Happy Gift Pack, which includes a three-pack of hot cross buns for $16 or a six-pack for $19. The bakery is encouraging to gift hot cross buns to friends, co-workers, employees or clients. Home delivery is available anywhere in the Adelaide Metro area.
Maccas Bread and Milk
Fast food restaurants have now reached a point where they have closed the dining in areas for patrons, but drive-throughs and home delivery are now the preferred way of bringing your cravings during a contactless service. But if you’re running low on some essential basics, McDonald’s strangely has us covered. As of today, Maccas is offering a special purchase for customers while in a drive-through of tw0 or three-litre bottles of full cream or skim milk, and packs of English muffins or gourmet bread rolls. We’re lovin’ it?
