With e-food is booming in the Corona crisis, German online supermarket Picnic wants to deliver on Sundays from April onwards. The company is giving top priority to doctors and nurses. Competitor Getnow has launched a similar offer on Monday.
Food delivery services are reaching their capacity limit amid the corona crisis. Online supermarket Picnic is introducing the seven-day week and will also deliver on Sundays from April 5. Although "normal" households will also be able to order on this day, the Düsseldorf-based company is directing this offer particularly to doctors and nursing staff. The e-food specialist announces that Picnic will prioritise deliveries to health care workers. 

"Our customers have told us how much nurses are currently under strain. This led to the idea of introducing Sunday as an additional delivery day and dedicating it to this group", says Frederic Knaudt, managing director at Picnic.

Picnic is not the first provider with a special offer for health care personnel. E-food specialist Getnow is also making special delivery slots available for all doctors, nursing staff and the Red Cross in Germany and is waiving delivery costs.
