WOTD: Delivery

Did you know that the first food delivery service is thought to have occurred as early as 1947.

The service was organized by the Woman’s Volunteer Service during WW2. It was first dreamt up out of a need in the community for cooked meals that could not be provided at home, due to the lack of power, water, or whole kitchen is some places. Unlike today the meals were cooked and transported warm. The idea quickly spread around the globe. It has gone through many iterations from helping the elderly, needy, homeless, to the mass consumer needs that we see mostly today.

Now you know.
