Mobile Market Brings Fresh Food To 'Deserts'


For Chattanoogans who live miles from a grocery store and don't have access to a car, buying groceries can be a constant struggle. But there's a new traveling store that aims to alleviate some of that burden. It's the Chattanooga Mobile Market.

The mini grocery store is run by the YMCA, Gaining Ground, Hamilton County's Health Department, and the Food Bank. WUTC's Mary Helen Miller rode along to one of the stops with Amy Johnson, the Mobile Market's manager.




Mary Helen Miller was a producer for Around and About from 2012 to 2013. She now works at the Chattanooga Times-Free Press.
