Delivering Alcohol Guidelines

While go4ing, you may see orders containing alcohol beverages.

The following information is intended to help you lawfully deliver alcohol with Go4Food. You could be held liable if you deliver alcohol to a minor or someone who is visibly intoxicated, so it’s important that you know what to do to protect yourself and the customer.

Important reminders:

  • You must verify the customer’s identity by following instructions in the Go4Foodie app before you hand them an order containing alcohol. You cannot leave an alcohol order unattended or hand it to someone else who cannot produce a valid ID(even if they claim that the customer is inside and can’t come to the door).
  • Go4Foodies cannot consume alcohol prior to or while go4ing—or be under the influence of anything.
  • The name on the Consumer’s ID doesn’t need to match the Consumer’s name in the Go4Foodie app. However, you must always verify Consumers have a valid government-issued photo ID to confirm they are of legal age.

This is serious business. You may be held liable if you provide alcohol to a person who is underage or intoxicated.

  • Liability may include:
    • Facing fines or jail time for illegal alcohol delivery
    • Facing civil suits, which typically result in a monetary fine (but a criminal action can result in jail time) 
    • Facing lawsuits that individuals may bring against delivery persons to recover damages for personal injury or property. 
    • Removal from major delivery platform(s) resulting from non-compliance

Remember, we’re here to support you! If you have any questions before, during, or after go4ing, get in touch with us through the Go4Foodie app.
