When someone needs a hand, we are happy to help. Our Sendial Grocery Shopping & Delivery Program does the shopping for customers who, because of injury, frailty or other physical reason, can’t easily get to our stores or shop independently.

Thrifty Foods Sendial volunteers phone each Sendial customer on an assigned morning each week to take theirΒ order, and then shop the order the next day. After we process the order through our checkout, we send it out for delivery in a refrigerated delivery truck. Delivery times vary from week to week depending on what other orders are on the delivery truck, but you can be sure you’ll receive your groceries the day after placing your order. We do require that someone be available to accept and pay for the order in person when we deliver. Sendial is available on a temporary or permanent basis for just $5 per delivery.

Sendial was born out of the collaborative vision of Thrifty Foods customer and seniors advocate Prue Cunningham, and Thrifty Foods founder Alex Campbell Senior. The service opened at our Fairfield, Victoria location on January 13, 1987. Within a year, more than 100 customers depended on Sendial for their weekly groceries and fresh foods. Today, that number has grown to over 700 customers served every week!
