COVID-19 Grocery Response NDG


Project overview

COVID-19 Grocery Response NDG is a initiative of the Aging, Communication, and Technology (ACT) project led by engAGE researcher Kim Sawchuck.

Working with a local grocery store in the Montreal neighbourhood of NDG, this nimble project pairs volunteers with older adults to help them with grocery delivery to their homes. It also doubles as a friendly check-in! The project is currently being expanded to other Montreal neighbourhoods.

For more information, check out their website.
