The Student Volunteer Army Grocery Delivery Service

We have a Grocery Delivery Service operating in partnership with New World  The safe system and contactless delivery service sees orders being placed online via shop.sva.org.nz or via 0800 005 902 using a debit or credit card. Families of older people often order on their behalf. A screened and vetted volunteer collects the items from the supermarket and delivers them to the door. SVA then charges the pre-authorised credit card with the exact amount spent at the supermarket following delivery + a $6 delivery fee. We imagine the service continuing to operate even as we go back to level 2 with a focus on social isolation and loneliness. The service is available nationwide.

Information on the service is listed on the official Covid19 website here: https://covid19.govt.nz/individuals-and-households/shopping/if-you-cant-get-essential-supplies/
