How It Works


For Residents Who Want Help

Join for free and book local volunteers to do your food shopping for you while you’re at home. You can also order a variety of meals and food boxes from local restaurants and farms and have them delivered to you.

How to make a request

Search for volunteers and services in your area, send them a message to request what you need. Communicate safely through the ZipRound platform to arrange your delivery.

If you are requesting a grocery or pharmacy shop they will buy your items and then ask you to pay them back for the goods on delivery. Please choose safer payment methods such as Paypal.

For Volunteers

At this time of crisis local volunteers can come together to help vulnerable, self-isolating and key-worker residents get the supplies they need, when they need them.

Join ZipRound as a local volunteer for your community and post a listing for type of help you can offer, for example grocery and pharmacy shop, dog-walking, a quick chat on the phone. 

Customers will send you a message with what they need. Confirm receipt of the request and communicate with them safely using the online message system on ZipRound.

If you are shopping on behalf of the customer, you do the shop using your own money and ask the customer to pay you back. Please choose safer payment methods such as Paypal. We recommend you agree the payment method before hand and then ask for payment on delivery.

Volunteers can setup a free PayPal.me link so they can receive payment instantly from customers. With payment received you can leave the delivery with the customer.

Please be careful to use a no-touch process when delivering.

For Businesses

In this time of crisis and self isolation local residents desperately need home deliveries of meals, groceries and other essential items.

We would like to invite businesses that can deliver meals and food boxes to list on ZipRound. It’s completely free to add your business and takes just a few minutes to set up.
