During reconfinements, some members of neighborhood Facebook groups volunteer their help with shopping. Just look for your neighborhood in the search bar, join it and then identify the publications where your fellow citizens generously offer a helping hand. You can write to them directly and return the favor when they need it.

You also have the option of ordering a box of ready-to-cook meals, but you usually have to wait a week before receiving everything (the dishes must be validated and the ingredients are sent at a fixed time). Less practical when our confinement lasts only 5 to 10 days.
