Keasbey, NJ (December 13, 2013) - Supermarkets of Cherry Hill, Inc., a family business which owns and operates five ShopRite stores in southern New Jersey, has partnered with the Center for Family Services (CFS) in a pilot program designed to bring healthy food options to the Camden community. Beginning December 12, ShopRite from Home® will bring fresh, healthy food to Camden residents through a pilot program with the Center for Family Services (CFS).

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie's Administration has spearheaded the new initiative to address urban food deserts through the use of online ordering of groceries from supermarkets. Without access to supermarkets, residents of food deserts are typically left with limited access to affordable healthy foods.

As part of the program, CFS will provide Camden City residents with free access to computers so that they can choose their fresh groceries for delivery, ordering support, and provide training on a variety of related issues, including workshops on nutrition and budgeting. Combining the latest in mobile and digital technology with ShopRite's low prices and exceptional customer service, ShopRite from Home allows customers to place online orders from their home computer or mobile device and have their groceries delivered. The store's personal shopper selects the items directly from store shelves, ensuring that they are fresh. ShopRite from Home customers enjoy the same savings as in-store shoppers do; they can even shop online right from the ShopRite's weekly sale circular. And ShopRite customers can use their ShopRite Price Plus Club card for added savings. Manufacturer's and digital coupons are accepted as well and customers can pay for their groceries using checks, credit cards, debit cards or EBT cards.
