Save Yourself from Frostbite with Delivery

This winter is causing an increase in food delivery needs

In this weather, no one can blame you for not going outside.

With the number of blizzards and the wind chill advisories, this winter has caused people to stay in their homes as much as possible. When you finally run out of food and have to bear the cold to go grocery shopping, sometimes it seems as though it is not worth it and contemplating delivery is now No. 1 on your list.

The weather this year makes delivery drivers a high priority in people’s minds, but getting pizza every day can become old. There are many other places around the Fargo-Moorhead area that deliver that do not serve just pizza. Here are a couple ideas for the next time the weather seems too unbearable for food.

There are services that will get food and deliver them to you like an Uber would deliver you to your destination, and there are some restaurants that offer delivery that you may not have known about before. Each of these services will only deliver so far, and most deliver to the Fargo/North Dakota State area, but be sure to check your address to see if you are in their delivery area.

Keep in mind that if the roads are too bad for you, they are too bad for a delivery driver and please do not force them to drive through terrible road conditions.

Uber Eats

This is one of the many options that allows you to order from specific restaurants around the area and get delivery with an extra fee on top of cost of the meal. The additional fee for this service is only $3.99.

Insomnia Cookies

If you’re craving dessert while stuck at home, this is the place for you. Insomnia Cookies offers cookies and ice cream to fill your sugar needs. Plus, they deliver until 2:45 a.m., depending on your location.

Passage to India

If you’re tired of the typical college food like pizza and Jimmy John’s delivery, then change it up with some Indian food.


Since you’re out of food, why not order more without having to leave your home? Hornbacher’s offers one-hour delivery, plus if you order over $35 in food for your first delivery, there will be no fee.

This list is just the beginning of places that offer delivery services. There are many more. Remember to always tip your delivery driver, especially in this weather, and that most costs do not initially include the tip.
