HOW TO GET GROCERIES.  Updated 3/2/2021

Village Drive Village strongly recommends that our older members and neighbors should stay home to avoid exposure to the novel coronavirus.

  1. Wegmans and other grocery stores have convenient apps which allow you to order items for delivery or drive-through pick-up.  
  2. Silver Members can contact concierge@villagedrivevillage.org to make arrangements with our younger volunteers to run errands for groceries or other necessities. We can also help you over the phone to set up the Wegmans app or to use Instacart to order from other stores. We have seen Giant grocery delivery trucks in our neighborhood.
  3. One of our neighbors, Jean Naka, will send one of her sons, Jeremy and Matthew Naka, to shop and deliver groceries. Even though they are not official Village Drive Village volunteers, they are also willing to help with other tasks for older neighbors--smoke alarm batteries, urgent yard work, etc. For shopping, you will need to coordinate the finances with Jean; some stores at check-out may allow Jean’s sons to phone you so you can give your credit card number to the cashier; for other stores you may need to reimburse the Nakas with a check when they deliver the groceries. Cash? Maybe, but that involves extra contact and extra risk. To make arrangements, call Jean Naka. Contact concierge@villagedrivevillage.org for her phone number

  1. Please contact concierge@villagedrivevillage.org or post on the Village Drive Village facebook group if you know of other ideas for getting groceries and other necessities.
