COVID-19 Grocery Response NDG is a replicable grocery delivery model for delivering groceries to seniors 70+, who are required to stay in their homes during the pandemic. The project is an initiative from community groups and organizations in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (NDG) neighbourhood of Montreal. Communities and community partners are invited to look through our website and take the tools that they need to develop their food security community response to COVID -19.
With this model, volunteers place friendly phone calls to seniors in need and take their grocery order, selecting items from a simplified list. Collaborating grocery stores deliver the order to the seniors.
We are developing tools, approaches and promising practices, which we want to share widely with the Montreal community and beyond.
