As the challenges of food shopping have increased amid the uncertainty around coronavirus, several UK supermarket chains have prioritised opening at certain times of the day for vulnerable and older people.

Several have launched delivery and voucher initiatives to help shoppers and carers. Where confirmed, details of these are published below.  

On the Sight Advice FAQ website, a resource for blind and partially sighted people supported by RNIB, there is a range of useful information on a variety of subjects including how to arrange shopping deliveries and how to get essential food supplies if you are struggling financially.

Here you can find key information and links to the announcements from some of the key supermarket chains:
