The service is available to those living in Bancroft, Hastings Highlands, Faraday, Carlow/Mayo, Wollaston, Limerick and parts of Tudor and Cashel Townships. The service is for people who have no other means of getting groceries.

The receipt will be attached to the groceries and the person that placed the order will have to pay for it when it’s dropped off either with their debit or credit card or by using another form of payment."
