Turning a bus into a mobile grocery store to combat South Jersey food deserts

The goal? To bring fresh produce and groceries where they're needed in Camden and Burlington counties

Even in a place known as the Garden State there are still plenty of communities without access to fresh fruits and vegetables. Those areas are known as food deserts. How do you solve it? Bring the grocery store to them. As part of our ongoing series Hunger in NJ, Correspondent Leah Mishkin reports on an innovative solution being rolled out for the first time in South Jersey.

Support for “Hunger in NJ” has been provided by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
