Woolworths Group CEO Brad Banducci says: “At Woolworths we are focused on supporting the most vulnerable in the community during these challenging times.
“To help support getting basic food and essentials to those that need it most, our teams have been doing everything they can to scale up online and home deliveries to the elderly, people with disabilities or those in mandatory self-isolation.
“Following an extraordinary level of demand for groceries in recent weeks, reducing trading hours in a small number of our stores to turn them into ‘Priority Delivery Hubs’ will help us assist more people who can’t access a store to get products they need.
“At a time when hunger relief charities are seeing a surge in demand for providing meals and basic essentials, we’re also pleased to increase our commitment to our partners OzHarvest, Foodbank and FareShare.
"We hope our additional long term support will help them with any gaps they are facing as they continue to help those most in need in the community.”
Woolworths introduced Priority Assistance home deliveries last week to help our most vulnerable Aussies access essential groceries. Head here to find out more and register.
