How to order food online as a senior

The Internet, iPhone and Android phones have made the delivery of food to your house much easier and quicker. Many apps exist to help you have food delivered to your home. Some are available on your phone, others are available on the internet and work in a similar way to the old pizza delivery service, minus the telephone call, but now you simply order online instead of over the phone and food is delivered to the desired address.

Here is a short list of Australian food delivery services we have found (and used). Give one a go next time you feel like an easy night, and then tell us what you think!

Food Boxes


Another kind of food delivery service is food boxes. Food boxes are boxes that are delivered to your door and provide fresh fruit and vegetables. Some companies deliver other food items such as meat and dairy. This is different to services like Woolworths online shopping in that the companies usually specialise in fresh, perishable food and focus on local products. Food boxes can be used to replace your weekly shopping runs, or to supplement them.


Below are a list of companies which deliver food boxes:
