According to the New Delhi CM, they will.

Food, Medicines and e-commerce related to food items will remain available.

The CM has made it clear that all essentials will be accessible and there will be no need to hoard on goods.

While all private companies have been asked to stay shut, we as citizens need not fear for staples. While retail shops will be closed, kirana and other grocery stores will be open. And though restaurants will remain shut, food delivery services will run smoothly.
