Since a new location opening we covered in 2015, a Baltimore program doubled the number of locations offering online grocery ordering in areas that lack supermarkets or healthy food offerings.

On Monday morning, Baltimore City Health Commissioner Leana Wen passed out groceries to mark the opening of the 14th location of Virtual Supermarket at the Ruscombe Gardens, a low-income senior housing facility in the Cylburn neighborhood of northwest Baltimore.

It’s the latest facility offering seniors the option of ordering groceries. The groceries are delivered to the complex, where residents can pick them up.
