Whether you are an at-risk individual, a busy employee working for home, or someone with difficult circumstances preventing them from easily shopping (new moms, for example), Groceries for Good was started for the purpose of helping you out! We know that circumstances are extremely difficult for everybody right now, so we are seeking to help others through the simple task of grocery shopping.
Groceries for Good matches local high school volunteers with busy individuals who need help shopping. When you submit our "Need Groceries Delivered?" form, you are put into our database and matched up with a volunteer. Then, the volunteer will get you what you want, when you want! All this for no cost!
How It Works
