Bag Half Full Free Grocery Delivery Service

Bag half Full is a grocery delivery service started by Uof A medical students that has expanded into several other cities and will carry on after the pandemic.  They cater to individuals/families who are sick, self-isolating and/or immunocompromised, as well as individuals who are elderly or have disabilities that limit their access to grocery services.
Services: 1. Pick-up and delivery of online grocery orders 
2. Grocery shopping and delivery 
3. Prescription pick-up and delivery 
There is no delivery or service fee, individuals can pay for their groceries online in advance OR they can use e-transfer, cash or cheque to pay the amount on the final receipt to the volunteer that paid for and picked up the order themselves.
Orders can be placed several ways including:
1. Using the following google form: https://forms.gle/inDDf7Sr2iKze8W48
