Food Assistance for Seniors, High-risk Residents, and Needy Families
Oakland County is excited to offer a brand new, free grocery delivery opportunity for older adults throughout the county. As COVID-19 numbers increase heading into the winter, and in an effort to help older adults still access the everyday items they need without having to expose themselves to risk unnecessarily, Oakland County partnered with Shipt to provide a one-year membership for unlimited, same-day delivery from a variety of local stores.
This annual membership is being offered free of charge to Oakland County senior residents who are aged 60 or older and offers unlimited, same-day grocery delivery. Please note that you must pay for the items that you order, but delivery will be free of charge with this membership. Free Shipt memberships will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last. This is a limited time offer and you must sign up by December 10, 2020.
