The Lincoln Parish Sheriff ’s Office is offering grocery pickup and delivery service for residents age 60 and older who use the Walmart grocery pickup service or the Super 1 Foods curbside service.

Deputies were scheduled to make their first delivery Monday afternoon.

“We were looking for a way we could help the at-risk and people who are disabled,” LPSO Public Information Officer Deputy Matt Henderson said.

LPSO is also providing the service to students at the Louisiana Center for the Blind.

Here’s how the program works:

After individuals submit their online orders with either of the Ruston Walmart locations, or with Super 1, call the sheriff ’s office at 251-5111 and provide the following information:

• Customer name or order number

• Store location

• Date and time block of scheduled pickup

• Phone number and address of delivery

The service will be available from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays.
