Whatever you're craving — your favorite meal at a local restaurant, a new dessert, some almond butter or chai tea mdash; there's a delivery service that can bring that item or meal to your door! The best part? You're in control, need no sighted assistance, and no travel is involved. Having tried each of the eleven food or meal delivery services included in the book, Kim and Chris guide you through the ins and outs, the good and the bad, of these services, as well as provide tips for browsing, navigating the website and app versions, where applicable, and much more!
