We’ll Be Shopping For Groceries Online

According to https://www.smchealth.org/coronavirus-county-data-dashboard), there are now 243 cases of Covid, just one week after the count had been 177! Quite an upswing.

Recently we saw this advice : that people in our age bracket should discontinue visiting scores for groceries and medications –

That, and because Foster City Covid-19 cases have been rising rapidly – as have cases in San Mateo where our favorite grocer is located, has led us to the decision to break the weekly habit we’d developed over the past 9 months of isolation and discontinue in-store shopping. (Beyond that, we also just learned that our daughter knows someone – in a different geographic area – who contracted Covid-19 precisely from visiting a grocery.)

If you have been doing your grocery shopping online and can offer some advice on the do’s and don’ts of it – we welcome your thoughts! Thank you. – Jerry and Eve

  1. Just to update, we’ve begun using Instacart for our shopping – at Draegers, Safeway, and Target so far – and we’re quite happy with it. As another neighbor has pointed out to us via Email, the service may end up having to make substitutions and fail on occasion to find items on the stores’ shelves – but in our case we have been very pleased with the service; the substitutions have been satisfactory, and only a couple items weren’t available. (If substitutions or omissions are made, they adjust the tab with very clear annotations). If you are interested in trying it out for the first time, you’ll save $10 on your first order

    using this link: https://inst.cr/t/VGczOWpmY2RI
    using this code at checkout: E4E161D115

    Either will result in a $10 credit being posted to OUR Instacart account, so if you do try Instacart out this way – THANK YOU!
