However, many have been struggling to get their hands on delivery slots, fearing they might run out of food.
Express.co.uk spoke with a number of vulnerable people who were at their wits end trying to order groceries.
One 59-year-old man who who suffers from Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease (COAD), brochitis, asthma, rheumatoid arthritis and uses an electric wheelchair told Express.co.uk: “Rheumatoid arthritis has taken my knuckles so I can’t use my hands. I have nobody to help, no family, no friends. My next door neighbours are both 80 with bad illness themselves.
“I have also been looking online to put order in for then next day coming on but slots are full, this is everyday.”
