The city of Torrance will begin offering a grocery delivery service to the COVID-19 at-risk population on Tuesday, officials said.
The Torrance Cares 2-Go Care Package will provide 18 preselected essential grocery and sanitary items for $70 delivered straight to their door, said Michael D. Smith, Torrance spokesman.
Torrance seniors, those with disabilities and residents with underlying health conditions are all eligible. Service will be limited to one per household, per week and while supplies last, Smith said.
Qualifying Torrance residents can place orders beginning Monday by calling 310-618-6339 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. or submit online anytime at www.CityofTorranceCA.com/TC2Go.html. Payments can be made over the telephone by credit card only.
“The city will attempt to fulfill orders as quickly as possible,” Smith said. “Depending on volume, the fulfillment of some orders may take up to three business days. A city employee will notify customers of delivery date prior to delivery.”
The Torrance Cares 2-Go Go Cares Package will be delivered by a uniformed city employee in a city-marked fleet vehicle.
