Easy Grocery Shopping for The Physically Disabled.

Here are some useful resources I’ve been using now that I’m a foot amputee and in the beginning have had a hard time to go food shopping in person.

Amazon Fresh

https://www.amazon.com/alm/storefront?almBrandId=QW1hem9uIEZyZXNo

PROS

  • Easy online shopping experience.
  • Easy item refunds.
  • Lots of delivery time slots available.
  • Free delivery to Amazon Prime customers ($35 min. order).
  • Takes EBT as payment.

CONS

  • Mostly limited to food (though some non-food items).
  • Limited options in some food categories.

NOTES

  • Be specific in the delivery notes on how to deliver to you front door.

Walmart+

https://www.walmart.com/grocery/

PROS

  • Express delivery available (in 2 hours) for $10.
  • Lots of inexpensive food.
  • When a specific item is not available, sometimes I received the item in a more expensive brand or a larger quantity.
    • Example: One time the 75 oz launder soap was not available, so they sent time the 180 oz version.
  • Food comes in well packaged recyclable paper bags.
  • Easy item refunds.
  • Takes EBT as payment.

CONS

  • The delivery time slots are very limited.
  • Sometimes (was often for me) not all items are delivered. You’ll be automatically refunded on items not delivered.
  • Food comes in plastic bags.
  • Limited on high-quality food items.

NOTES

  • The Tip amount is automatic. Can be adjusted manually.
  • Be specific in the delivery notes on how to deliver to you front door.
