Grocery Shop-by-Phone

The Grocery Shop-by-Phone Program helps our seniors with their weekly groceries. Citizen Support Services in cooperation with Safeway offers a Shop-by-Phone Program to assist Burnaby senior residents who are living independently and are experiencing difficulties in getting out to do their weekly grocery shopping. Our volunteers contact clients to get their grocery lists by Monday, and then on a Tuesday our volunteers shop the groceries for same day delivery. To register for the Grocery Shop-by-Phone Program contact 604-294-7498.
