Mobile grocery store to offer discounts

An Inland non-profit agency has launched a mobile grocery store to offer healthy food to low-income residents in rural areas.

The Family Service Association started its “Mobile Fresh” pilot program last week at its Moreno Valley headquarters, the first of 10 stops the store is scheduled to make through December, according to a report originally published in The Press-Enterprise.

All of those stops will be within a 50-mile radius of the agency’s headquarters.

The goal is to sell food to 50 to 100 people at each location at prices 20 to 30 percent below regular supermarket prices, according to the report.
