Food delivery: which grocery and meal delivery services have slots right now?

Update 20/04/20: As another week of lockdown begins, food delivery slots and click & collect services are still hard to find. Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Asda have all increased capacity to meet demand, but our research has shown only a few slots are available.To help identify elderly and vulnerable customers, supermarkets are using customer and government data to prioritise food delivery slots for those who need it most. Make sure you’ve signed up to the government’s database of clinically vulnerable people if you need support.Morrisons still has a limited number of food delivery slots available, but you can order and essential food box from Morrisons from £30 and there’s good availability, too. You can also order Morrisons products through Amazon Prime Now in some areas of the UK. If you don’t have a Prime membership, you can sign up for a free 30-day trial of Prime, and cancel before the trial ends with no strings attached.Some meal delivery services are still running too, and may prove to be a better alternative – see below. There are also plenty of local community groups that are organising food delivery for people who are self-isolating via Facebook, WhatsApp and more, so keep an eye on what’s happening in your area.
Online food delivery services have been under strain since the coronavirus lockdown. It’s been hard to book a grocery delivery, but as we move further into April we’re starting to see small signs of progress.The main advice, still, is to visit a physical store if you can, so that supermarkets can prioritise food delivery slots for elderly or vulnerable customers. However, if you need to order food online, many supermarkets are releasing small numbers of food delivery slots for elderly or vulnerable customers throughout the day – so keep trying. You should be able to find a slot eventually.
