I went to HyVee a few days ago and was shocked to see most of the meat, all of the bread, and several other basic items were gone. It's hard to find a lot of essentials in stores these days, but a new app might be able to help you.

The free 'Hassle-Free Grocery' app works through the Facebook messager app and allows you to search for specific items (toilet paper, sanitizer, disinfectant, eggs, etc...) and then shows you the stores that are most likely to have those items. If you have Facebook messager, you can check it out here.

This tool does require you to help out - When you are out shopping you can update the app with what you see on store shelves to help keep the information as fresh as possible.
