WALTHAM, MASS. —Alltown Fresh, a convenience-store division of Global Partners LP, has launched a variety of contactless shopping methods to keep customers engaged during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Customers can order Alltown Fresh’s new Fresh Crates—boxes of protein, produce and pantry items—for pickup. Additionally, they can buy Alltown Fresh’s new pre-assembled meal prep kits, which serve a minimum of four people and include options such as Taco Night; Teriyaki Rice Bowls; Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese; Chicken, Broccoli and Pasta Bake; and Fresh Falafel Wraps. Customers can pick up the meal kits by 5 p.m. if the order is placed before noon the same day.

"The Alltown Fresh team has acted quickly to create ways to ensure our customers are equipped with healthy options and the ability to shop for fresh groceries in these uncertain times," said Eric Slifka, CEO of Global Partners. "The health and safety of our guests and associates is always top of mind, and we're delighted to increase our contactless shopping options to make everyone's life a little bit easier."
