Innovation Gets Food To People in Rural Virginia

As COVID-19 took hold, many of us have turned to online grocery delivery services to keep our families fed and thriving. But many rural areas, like Virginia’s Eastern Shore, may lack the digital infrastructure for online grocery services. Shore Delivery Corps, partially funded by United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, mobilizes volunteers to provide free grocery delivery services to older adults and individuals with existing health issues. Volunteers check participant's eligibility, location and schedule deliveries. To learn more, check out this Innovation Case Study created by United Way Worldwide. it tells the inspiring story of how a community rallies around its most vulnerable.
