Fairfax County Offers Free Grocery Pickup Service for Older Adults

In order to respond to the needs of older adults, Fairfax County has launched a new grocery shopping and pharmacy pickup service for older adults.

The health department’s Neighbor to Neighbor Program will pick up groceries and pharmacy orders for free for residents who are above the age of 60. 

The service is available for seniors who live in private residences and need assistance. Volunteers will have completed background checks.

In order to determine eligibility or place an order, residents can all the Fairfax County Aging, Disability and Caregiver Resource line at 703-324-7948.

The service is not available for longterm care retirement communities, assisted living centers, nursing homes, group homes or other facilities.

The program is supported by the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department and the Department of Family Services.
