For many people, acquiring food has consistently come with a struggle due to quarantine measures. Prices have gone up and a single trip to the grocery is riskier and more time-consuming only for you to be greeted with empty supermarket racks. And if you have a particular diet or lifestyle, it might’ve been more difficult for you to keep up with it throughout lockdown.
We feel you, vegan friends. Over the past few weeks, we’ve featured pizza places, bakeries and restaurants with different kinds of meal kits, but today we dedicate this list to those of you looking for vegan options that are now delivering.
