There have been lengthy waits to book deliveries from shops like Morrisons, Tesco and Asda, while stories including Iceland are temporarily limiting website orders to customers over state pension age, those who are self-isolating and other vulnerable groups, such as the disabled.

Whether people want to buy fruit and vegetables, meat or baked goods, here are another six food delivery services across Sheffield that are well worth trying.

The Rhubarb Shed Café

The café on Manor Lane is delivering boxes of vegetables and fruit, salad, eggs, meat and full cakes, as well as cake slices and baking kits. Food is available for collection and delivery is free in the S2 postcode area – for those living in S12, S13 and S14 there is a £3 charge. Orders are sent out from Tuesday to Saturday and are needed before 3pm for next day delivery. See www.facebook.com/therhubarbshed for details.
