Does planning for meals provide more stress than pleasure? Could it be the idea of getting to the nearest grocery store, or the thought of reading the food labels that gives you anxiety? Is the nearest pharmacy not-so-near?

Luckily, the internet has finally caught up with the needs of people who are seeking to reduce their stress and still maintain their access to food and medication. Between grocery delivery, meal delivery and pharmacy delivery, this is a great time to be online. There are countless companies and programs starting up everyday to fill this niche, and below I've highlighted a diverse array of what's out there now.
