The Salvation Army has a new concept for anyone who needs to stretch their grocery budget. Last week the organization opened DMG Foods, named after its motto “Doing the Most Good.”The grocery store in Baltimore is a 7,000-square-foot store that looks like any other grocery store. A video on the Salvation Army of Central Maryland’s Facebook page takes you on a walk-through of the store on opening day. Along with aisles of non-perishables and dairy items, there’s fresh produce, a butcher, a bakery, rotisserie chickens, a deli, and a prepared food section with items prepared by volunteers from the Maryland Food Bank. There’s even a loyalty card program complete with coupons.To open the store, the Salvation Army of Central Maryland partnered with the Maryland Food Bank, according to a statement on the Salvation Army’s website. The food bank will provide the majority of the store’s inventory. Local farmers and suppliers have also been tapped to provide fresh produce.
