Baltimore City officials re-launched an online grocery shopping program called the Virtual Supermarket Wednesday nearly a year after the program’s original grocery store partner closed its doors.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who helped make the first deliveries, said the city has partnered with Collins ShopRite to provide the service to neighborhoods classified as food deserts. Collins ShopRite operates one store in Glen Burnie and three in the Philadelphia area.
