Calderdale Council has teamed up with Totally Locally and Cargodale to provide the service, after successfully bidding for £50,000 from the Government’s Department of Health and Social Care.
Fresh food deliveries from local shops, straight to people’s doors by electric bike, are set to make life easier for Halifax residents who are isolating or at higher risk from COVID-19.
This is thanks to DeliverHX, an innovative new food delivery service which supports independent businesses, is good for the environment and offers a helping hand to people who are unable or nervous to go shopping due to COVID-19.
Customers order their food and other essentials online from Halifax Borough Market traders, and some other Halifax town centre shops, at www.deliverhx.co.uk. They make one secure online payment and their items are delivered for free the next day by carbon neutral electric cargo bike.
