About

MY NEIGHBORHOOD MOBILE GROCERY

My Neighborhood Mobile Grocery (MNMG) is a nutritionally-focused mobile grocery retail model that provides individuals and families with low access to affordable, healthy foods with a new and innovative shopping option within their communities. Offering a wide, competitively priced product mix that balances client choice with nutritional products, educational programming, and free food give-a-ways to incentivize increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, MNMG extends the purchasing power of shoppers.
