The Health Department in Baltimore, Maryland has come up with a “Virtual Supermarket Project” which is designed to make healthy food more accessible to people “in communities where major supermarkets are scarce.” Residents of Baltimore can order their groceries online, and then go to two local branch libraries to pick up their food items the next day! Public libraries exist, after all, to serve their communities, so this is a wonderful way to be an even more integral part of the community.  I’m guessing that many more city communities will give this idea a try as the word of its success spreads.
