19 May 2020 - Supermarket Delivery Scheme Trial
Two supermarkets are trialling delivery schemes through Lewes Council in partnership with DEFRA - Tesco and Iceland.
The Tesco scheme is already up and running and arrangements for the Iceland scheme are being finalised and will be launched shortly.
The schemes are targeted at meeting the longer term needs of a wide range of vulnerable customers who are unable to benefit from the provision being made for the tier 1 shielded residents. This group includes both individuals and households who are unable to access food because they are self-isolating at home or because they are following enhanced social distancing rules. Those able to benefit from the trial must be able to pay for their orders and be comfortable using online shopping.
Access to each of the schemes is operated via direct referral from the Community Hub only so any customers who feel that they fit the criteria should contact the Council by ringing 01273 099956. The Community Hub team will check their eligibility and make the referral as appropriate.
