To combat the problem, the Housing Authority is working with organizations in the community to establish a mobile grocery store.

This would allow families to purchase the necessary things they need right at their front door.

So far, Warren County Public Schools has donated a refurbished 34 passenger bus.

Tuesday afternoon, there will be an informational luncheon at 11:30am at the Housing Authority on Double Springs Road, to announce the goals and vision of the Mobile Grocery Store.
