Hunkering down? These apps will keep you from missing your favorite foods

What’s your favorite delivery app?


Much of the country is doing the best it can to stay away from crowds, but that’s hard to do when you need to feed your family (or you’re missing your favorite restaurants).

If you’re trying to stay away from the grocery store, or you’re just looking for a change of pace for your family at meal time, we think you should consider these apps, which will deliver food from the restaurant to your front doorstep — with just a few taps on your device (iOS or Android):

It’s worth noting that many delivery app officials have issued statements saying they are changing the default delivery method to a no-contact option to minimize contact​.

In addition, many of the following apps are waiving some delivery and commission fees in order to provide some relief to independent restaurants.
