Too Long; Didn't Read
Before this lockdown, Americans would eat out on average nearly 6 times per week. Eating at home is still popular - Americans spend around $4,400 annually on food for their fridge. In these past few weeks, going to grocery stores has been discouraged and most restaurants have been closed. Shoppers are stocking up on goods like canned foods, hand sanitizer, toilet paper, and bottled water. Amazon recently announced that it would prioritize shipping and delivery of household staples, medical supplies, and other high-demand products. Retail chains announced special hours for seniors only and increased overnight cleaning to protect shoppers.
