A group of medical students living in Suwanee and Lawrenceville have joined together to offer free grocery delivery service to immunocompromised and elderly individuals.

The students recognize leaving the home to shop can put medically fragile people at greater risk of infection. On March 23, Georgia Governor Brian Kemp issued an executive order requiring the Department of Public Health to require certain individuals with an increased risk of complications from COVID-19 to isolate, quarantine, or shelter in place. As a part of this order individuals who live in a long-term care facility, have chronic lung disease, or are undergoing cancer treatment should isolate, quarantine, or shelter in place.

The service is free, but those participating will need to pay the grocery bill.
