CHOW unveils new 'Mobile Grocery Store'

Posted: Updated:

VESTAL (WBNG) -- The Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse (CHOW) unveiled its new Mobile Grocery Store on Thursday at the United Way of Broome County in Vestal. 

Organizers said the Mobile Grocery Store is a way to eliminate the food desert on the Northside of Binghamton and in rural areas around the Southern Tier.

The bus carries non-perishable items along with fresh produce that you would find at a brick and mortar store. All of the items will have little to no cost.

"There's a stigma revolving around hunger to where if you go to a pantry or a community meal, people look down upon you, so people being able to utilize this bus, they'll be able to - just like everyone else - just go to a grocery store and shop," said CHOW Director Jack Seman. 

The bus will make its first trip June 30.
