On Tuesday, the Associated Press reported that Avon Prime, a major U.S. meat delivery company, will be offering free meat to people who want to pick up a meal.
It also reported that Kraft, a subsidiary of Kraft Heinz, will start offering free hamburger delivery starting on Tuesday.
The AP story also reported on a new study by the Consumer Reports, which looked at the number of meat delivery trips per year in New York City and San Francisco.
The study found that, between 2012 and 2014, there were 4,547 meat delivery visits to restaurants, but only 39,569 deliveries were made to customers.
The study said the number may be down because of a decline in the number and cost of delivery vehicles and because some restaurants that offer delivery are getting rid of some of their vehicles.
But it also noted that more than a third of the people who were asked to pick their food were not able to do so because of the time it takes to deliver.
It’s unclear what the study’s findings mean for people who prefer meat delivery but don’t want to pay for a delivery.
