There are a whole lot of reasons you might be thinking about ordering food (and alcohol) delivery more often than usual. 

If that's how you're getting through the week, then here's a bit of great news. Lots of chains and delivery services are offering free, reduced-price delivery, and other delivery deals right now. We've collected those offers into a single space, which will be updated regularly, so you can keep an eye on what your best options are. That said, we'd encourage you to be extra kind to anyone delivering food, tip generously, and support your favorite local businesses. Additionally, when ordering, consider ordering directly from the restaurant rather than using a delivery service whenever possible. (Especially when you're ordering from a local restaurant.) Delivery services charge a fee to restaurants and, during a tough time, not having to pay those fees can make a big difference for your local restaurant.

Here's our running list of the best delivery deals you'll find right now.
