Free Delivery Round-Up for Spring 2020

With social distancing becoming the norm as we deal with the spread and mitigation of the COVID-19 coronavirus, a lot of us are left with either cooking at home or getting takeout or delivery during these trying times (a lot of restaurants are only offering delivery or takeout right now if not closing outright).

For updates on the COVID-19 coronavirus and best practices for protecting you and those around you, I recommend visiting the websites for the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and WHO (World Health Organization).
