The goal of this initiative is to provide free grocery delivery to those in the community that have severe mobility issues and other health problems that prevent them from getting groceries for themselves.

General Overview of Volunteer Activities:
- Volunteers will be assigned to one person on need; screened and assigned by ASPIRE.
- The client will provide a grocery list up to a maximum of 80 dollars to which brand names and preferences are given.
- At pre-arranged times, volunteers will shop at a grocery store in the area and then provide contactless delivery to the client’s place of residence. Grocery deliveries are limited to once a week at maximum.
- Following drop-off, the client is to e-transfer the whole cost of groceries to the volunteer. Volunteers will be reimbursed by ASPIRE if they do not receive payment within a reasonable window after delivery.
Currently, the Grocery Delivery Initiative is providing service in Windsor, ON.
We seek to help those who have great difficulty getting groceries for themselves on a day to day basis.

Covid-19 Emergency Response Initiative united way
As the citizens of Windsor-Essex County adjust to many new challenges, people who already rely on meal programs and services will be facing additional struggles. The absence of school nutrition programs will make it harder for children and families to cope. Precarious employment and the closure of many businesses means that the number of people who will require emergency food will increase dramatically in the coming weeks.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
United Way and our partners in the newly formed Emergency Food Action Coalition are working to identify solutions to Windsor-Essex County food challenges. Here’s how you can help:
- Donate – When you donate through United Way, you are helping food banks and meal programs provide emergency food and supports in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have set up a special Emergency Response Fund through the Canada Helps giving platform. All gifts come back to United Way to support local service providers
- Volunteer – If you or your organization can help with the emergency response, let us know. We’re developing a plan to involve local volunteers in responding to the food emergency crisis, and it’s being developed with your safety and the safety of vulnerable residents as our priority. Call our Volunteer Hotline if you think you can help: 519-259-6177 or e-mail email@example.com
- Share Information – Please share information about the need and the call to action to give to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund with your networks. Visit www.weareunited.com/Covid-19 to learn more about how you can help and what’s being done
